Andrew Dasburg (1887-1979) 

written by +Robert Parsons


Dasburg explained the experience of Taos, "The Taos Valley seemed like the first day of creation."


He was called "the greatest draughtsman of landscape since Van Gogh."

Dasburg said about Cézanne, "I came upon a small gallery where, in the window, were three or four paintings by Cézanne,

whose name I had heard mentioned but knew nothing of… I was immediately impressed by the great plastic reality of the paintings…

 I looked for a long time. I was completely imbued with what I saw - one of those things that rarely come to one but when they do,

they are forever memorable."


Dasburg said "The objects and occurrences of natural phenomena are not art.

For not appearances, but causations, the underlying geometric mechanism is the guiding principle on which [the artist] builds."
