Pueblo Woman, 1932 Art Map Location #31

Emil J. Bisttram

Dallas Museum of Art

Emil Bisttram immigrated to the United States in 1902 and studied at the National Academy of Design before joining the artists' colony at Taos in 1931. The following year, he established the Taos School of Fine Arts, where Bisttram advocated a form of abstract painting based on an intellectual formula of "dynamic symmetry.”. The early works from Taos depict the native population in a representational style and reflect Bisttram's training as a graphic artist. The simple forms and strong linear quality of Pueblo Woman also recall the great Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, with whom he briefly studied.
