        Nov. 06, 2022

        LAVERNE NELSON BLACK "CATTLE HERDING, TAOS NEW MEXICO" OIL ON CANVAS

        Est: -

        Laverne Nelson Black (1887 - 1938) "Cattle Herding, Taos, New Mexico" Oil on Canvas. Signed on lower right. He did not receive much attention for his work during his lifetime but was much appreciated later for his pictorial record of western life. LaVerne Nelson Black was born in Viola, Wisconsin, in the Kickapoo River Valley. His interest in art came early, when he experimented with vegetable juices, earths and a soft stone called red keel as his first painting supplies. In 1906 Black's family moved to Chicago, where Black enrolled at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts. During his second year at the Academy his work was of such outstanding quality that he was awarded a scholarship. In the late 1920's ill health forced Black to leave the East and settle with his wife and two children in Taos, New Mexico. Here, in a region rich in heritage, he did some of his best work depicting the pueblo architecture, Native Americans and the snow-covered Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Several years later, Black moved his family to the warmer climate of Phoenix, Arizona. During this Taos-Phoenix period, he completed commissions for the Santa Fe Railway Company with several of the paintings displayed in some of the line's largest offices. In Phoenix, he joined up with Oscar E. Berninghaus to paint murals for the Post Office with a WPA grant.

        2 INDIANS ON HORSEBACK ABOUT 12" x 10" signed lower right .Growing up in Wisconsin, Black spent his time drawing his natural surroundings. In 1906, he moved with his family to Illinois and enrolled at the Chicago Art Academy. For two years he studied there, gaining skills in illustration, sculpture and painting. Over the summers between 1908 and 1925 he escaped the East to paint in the West, always returning to his jobs in Chicago and New York. In 1925, ill health moved him, his wife and two children to Taos, New Mexico where he began painting Southwest Indian subjects. He had several successful sales to Tiffany's and commissions from various clients for his Indian genre but he never gained substantial recognition for his work completed while living in this popular Southwest area. It was not until the late 1930's that Black received the recognition he deserved.
