New Mexico Art Through Time

Prehistory to the Present

Joseph Traugott, Author

New Mexico Art Through Time illustrates 250 works of art extending back to the earliest worked points of the Paleo-Indian Clovis people to twentieth century artists.


"Joseph Traugott's new book wants you to expand your notion of what art is through time travel?How vast is this continuum? Traugott is talking 14,000 years?The author's text is supported by hundreds of color photographs. There are images of Paleo-Indian points and of Native American pottery, baskets, and weavings from the centuries before the arrival of the Spaniards. There is Hispanic santero art, and paintings by artists of the Santa Fe and Taos art colonies of the early 20th century...and yes, there are images made by many famous artists you would expect to see in such a comprehensive survey of New Mexico art. Among them are Georgia O'Keeffe, Peter Hurd, Judy Chicago, Luis Jimenez, Patrocinio Barela, Maria Martinez.
