Victor Higgins (1884 - 1949)

Victor Higgins was born in Shelbyville, Indiana. At age 15, he left home and went to study painting in Chicago, eventually enrolling at the Art Institute there. From 1911 to 1913, he studied in the great salons of Europe. In 1914, Higgins' friend and patron Chicago Mayor Carter H. Harrison arranged for the artist's first trip to New Mexico. It was love at first sight, and Higgins spent the next 35 years of his life painting the Taos coutryside and its peoples. Many critics believe Higgins to be the strongest painter of the artists who worked in Taos during this time.
