The Illuminator Room - Gene Kloss

From the first time Gene Kloss visited Taos on her honeymoon in 1925, she considered herself a New Mexico native. Kloss is known as an artistic translator and interpreter of the Southwest. She had many friends throughout the town and Pueblo of Taos. Many of her prints reflect Taos Pueblo ceremonies she witnessed there.

Kloss was also an innovator. She developed new printmaking methods to get the exact effect she wanted regarding lighting contrast. Kloss' dedication is one of the reasons she is considered one of the major printmakers of the 20th Century. Her work graces collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Smithsonian Institution, The Carnegie Institute, The San Francisco Museum of Art, The Library of Congress and The National Academy of Design. She was the first American woman printmaker to receive a full membership in the National Academy of Design.

We are proud to dedicate one of our Taos, NM resort rooms to her contributions to art and New Mexico. In developing the concepts behind our luxury Taos accommodations, it was clear Kloss must be included. There are many hotels in Taos, New Mexico - there is only one Gene Kloss and one Palacio de Marquesa.
