Ernest Leonard Blumenschein was among the group of artists who settled early in or near Taos, New Mexico, attracted by the Indian life and picturesque color. Blumenschein painted many award-winning pictures there, and he is represented in several museum collections by his Native American subjects.

    This Taos period came comparatively late in his life; earlier he had an active career as an illustrator in the East. Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he had attended the Cincinnati Art Academy and the Art Students league in New York. Later he studied with Constant, Laurens and Collin in Paris. Blumenschein was a very versatile and competent painter with a fresh unusual viewpoint. Although he worked realistically, there was always strong design underlying his pictures.

    For many years, Blumenschein divided his time between New York and New Mexico, eventually settling permanently in Taos.
