From Taos and Beyond: The Art and Odyssey of Hans Paap

From Taos and Beyond: The Art and Odyssey of Hans Paap

November 9–December 7

Reception November 9, 1–3 pm

Nedra Matteucci Galleries, 1075 Paseo de Peralta,

Hans Paap (1890–1967) was a German-born artist who lived and traveled all over the world. He is best remembered for his paintings of the people of Taos Pueblo, although this exhibit includes work from Europe and across North and South America.

The opening includes a book-signing for Hans Paap: Portraits and Landscapes, written by the painter’s daughter, Nancy Paap. “This book arose from my quest to learn more about the life and work of my late father,” she writes. “I saw him for the last time when I was four-and-a-half years old, and it was not until I was 20 that I heard his name spoken again.”
