New Mexico Museum of Art. Ten Seminal Works

Public

7/13/19

These ten images represent the art collections at the New Mexico Museum of Art. From the museum's inaugural exhibition curator, Robert Henri's "Portrait of Dieguito Roybal, San Ildefonso Pueblo" to contemporary artist, Jerry R. West's "Japanese Internment Camp", all ten artworks, together, tell the story of the century long development of the museum collections. Important to this story is the connection of these diverse artists, from different walks of life, to New Mexico. In many cases, they inspired each other and, certainly, their inspiration travels across time impacting emergent and future artists.
