Description

Willard F. Clark was a printmaker and artist who greatly shaped the way the rest of the world views old-time Santa Fe, New Mexico. Born in 1910 in Boston, he grew up in Argentina, and studied art during the summers in New York City at Grand Central Station Art School and the Hawthorn Art Academy. In 1928, on his way to California, he stopped in Santa Fe, New Mexico and fell in love with the majestic landscape of the American Southwest. There he started a small print shop and taught himself the craft of printing, cutting his own woodblocks, setting type, and binding small books. Willard Clark developed a graphic style that came to represent early Twentieth-century Santa Fe to many around the world. This collectible reprint of Recuerdos de Santa Fe, 1928-1943 includes 48 beautiful and original etchings, along with reminiscences from author Willard Clark that capture the old-time feel of Santa Fe, New Mexico. First produced as a limited edition book with 100 signed copies, this edition includes an introduction by the artist's grandson Kevin Ryan. Remembering Santa Fe makes a perfect gift for those who love Southwest art, an ideal memento of a Santa Fe vacation, or a charming souvenir for anyone interested in the art and artists of the West.show more

Remembering Santa Fe Old adobes, Pueblo Indians, delightful little burros, and the symbols of Catholicism all come to life through the art of Willard F. Clark. A printmaker and artist, he is widely known for capturing the romance of the old Southwest and greatly influencing the way we view Santa Fe, New Mexico. In Remembering Santa Fe the hand-carved woodcuts show daily life in the Southwest from 1928 to 1943-weaving, baking, building, singing, and worship. The style of the art is distinctive, and each etching is accompanied by reminiscences of the artist. This beautifully crafted book captures the spirit and essence of Santa Fe.show more
