The art of Santa Fe

Santa Fe is one of the largest art markets in the world and it has a colorful and interesting past.

In 1921, Los Cinco Pintores, Spanish for The Five Painters, a group of impressionist-influenced artists gained notoriety by working together to make art more accessible to the working class.

In 1929, Georgia O'Keefe, known for her paintings of flowers, cow skulls, and other New Mexico inspired themes, spent the first of many summers painting in New Mexico. Be sure to visit the Georgia O’Keefe Museum, when visiting Santa Fe.

Santa Fe is filled with numerous excellent museums featuring art including the museums of Fine Arts, Indian Arts and Culture, International Folk Art, and the Palace of the Governors that can all be entered by a single admission ticket.

Canyon Road which had been an Indian footpath for centuries became the heart of the first artist colony that made Santa Fe one of the top art centers in the world.
