Gene Kloss Biography

Gene said about Taos, "In this country everything lifts the trees, the mountains, the sky."

She  was called a "landscape mythic," a "portrait psychologist," and

a Taos Indian once said, "Yes, that is the way it was that night at our house."

Gene Kloss said, "I want the finished print to enable the viewer to see the design,

 the subject matter from across the room, at arm's length or under a magnifying glass

 also upside-down for satisfactory abstract design."

"There has always been a close alliance between my art and music".

Gene Kloss (Alice Geneva Glasier) was born on July 27, 1903 in Oakland, California.

She married poet Phillips Kloss in 1925 and that year settled in Taos, NM.

She started etching in 1927 and made more than 600 prints.

Gene was called, "one of the most sensitive and sympathetic interpreters of the Southwest."

She often worked from memory.  “The method I came [to] use to enable memory to compose etchings was to note details of costume, focus on two or three notes [sic] of the dance that was repeated and directly upon leaving the pueblo to make quick sketches[.] Next day I developed the drawings to completion which it was all fresh. Black and white of etchings is an abstraction of the dances.” (1989 letter from Kloss to R. H. Dick.)

Gene Kloss was elected National Academician
