FRANK PAUL SAUERWEN (1871-1910), “Indian Portrait, Taos Indian,” oil on academy board 14” x 10,” signed lower left.

Literature: J.A. Baird, “The West Remembered, Selections from the Collection of Earl C. Adams, “California Historical Society,, San Francisco and San Marino, CA. page 46, figure 79. Exhibited Old Mint, San Francisco June 15, 1973. Subsequently, Santa Barbara Art Museum.

Frank Paul Sauerwen was brought up in Philadelphia, the pupil of his father Charles D. Sauerwen. In 1871 he studied at the Philadelphia School of Industrial Arts, then the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and the Art Institute.

Sauerwen moved to Denver about 1891 because of tuberculosis, and in 1893 he began to sketch indians in the Rockies. l He was in Colorado Springs in 1893, traveling with Charles Craig to paint on the Ute Reservation, and first visited Taos in 1902, where he lived irregularly pretty much for the rest of his life.

Sauerwen was an important painter of the west of his time, a most competent, straightforward and naturalistic recorder of the landscape and Indian life… His best pictures are, sophisticated, painterly and satisfying on a very visceral level.
