Bert Geer Phillips (1868-1956)

written by 

and Ashley Rolshoven

Phillips said about Taos, "I believe it is the romance of this great pure-aired land

that makes the most lasting impression on my mind and heart."

"We had heard of Taos, the home and burial place of Kit Carson,

of the Indian People who live in 5 storied communal houses and the beautiful spanish girls.

Romance and Beauty: pictures to be painted: Adventure, all word of song.

Then, in a few short weeks I had found more inspiration and material for creative work than I could use in a lifetime.

More than that, I had found the ideal climate for outdoor work.

Also a realization that one artist alone could do no more than scratch the surface of this locality.

While the great southwest and artistic empire was practically undiscovered country to the art world.

Especially by people in the profession that have almost lost the pioneer spirit."

"Sometimes I ask myself why I remain away from the land of civilization,

but never before have I tried to formulate a reply. I have simply been content to stay on.

The charm of the great stretches of mountain and plains and interest of their inhabitants is never ending.

As I visit their villages and talk with my Indian friends,

I see and hear the young bucks wrapped in their white blankets

standing on the ridge, singing a love song in the moonlight, and I feel the romance of youth.

So the answer comes as I write and

"I believe it is the romance of this great pure-aired land that makes the most lasting impression on my mind and heart."

"Nothing could be more natural than that a distinctive American art idea should develop on a soil

 so richly imbued with romance, history and scenic beauty as is to be found in the far famed beautiful Taos Valley

 and the poetic Indian Village of the Taos Pueblos."

Blumenschein said, "Phillips is the foundation on which the Taos group built!" (El Palacio, May 1926)
Taos Society of Artists
(L-R, E.L. Blumenschein, O.E. Berninghaus, E.I. Couse, J.H. Sharp, B.G. Phillips, and W.H. Dunton)

Regarding Taos, Phillips said, "For heaven's sake, tell people what we have found! Send some artists out here.

There is a lifetime's work for twenty men."

    Accident that led to the founding of the Taos Art Colony   

Phillips was a Taos Society of Artists founder.

Bert Phillips Art Biography:

American Artist

Taos Society of Artists Founder

Taos Society of Artists
Blumenschein, Berninghaus, Couse, Phillips, Dunton (seated), Sharp

Phillips was born on July 15, 1868, in Hudson, New York

He began his Art Education at 16 years old at the Art Students League of New York

 and the National Academy of Design. In 1894 he studied at the Académie Julian

 becoming friends with Ernest Blumenschein and Joseph Henry Sharp.

 Sharp was the first to tell Phillips about the special qualities of the natural light in Taos.

 He was a student of George McKinstry. In his youth, Kit Carson was his hero

 and Phillips avidly read James Fenimore Cooper.

He studied with Benjamin Constant and Jean Paul Lauren’s.

Phillips was a student at Academie Julian, 

National Academy of Design School and the Art Students League of New York.

In 1896 he returned to New York to share a studio with Blumenschein.

He moved to Taos in 1898 as a result of the "unfortunate accident" of a broken wagon wheel.

In 1899 he married Rose Martin, sister of Tomas "Doc" Martin.

In 1915 he was a founder of the Taos Society of Artists.

In 1951 He became a benefactor of Harold Dow Bugbee,

 the curator of the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum in Canyon, Texas.

He died on June 16, 1956 in San Diego, California.

Joseph Sharp was the first to tell Phillips about the special qualities of the natural light in Taos.

Because they were no Art Galleries, he showed his work from his studio,

 beginning a tradition that endures in Taos and New Mexico to this day.
