In Taos, one ventures into an artist's paradise - a strange place of picturesque people.

Types and customs of the race furnish inspiration for Walter Ufer, who is at work on his painting "The Solemn Pledge."

Here also, we find Ernest Blumenschein depicting on canvas "An Old Indian Philosopher" whose portrait is to adorn the National Academy of Design in New York.

Taos is a town of cliff dwellers, rich in every detail of antiquity.

Ernest Blumenschein is one of the founders of the Artist Society in Taos, New Mexico.
