By 1939 Gene Kloss, born Alice Geneva Glasier, had been working and living in Taos, New Mexico for over a decade. The artist explored many different media to communicate the inspirational beauty and freedom found in Taos. Etching became her medium of choice, for in monochrome the artist could convey the drama and romance of the Southwestern desert.
