Eanger Irving Couse was an American painter best known for his realistic depictions of Native Americans and landscapes of the Southwestern United States. Born on September 3, 1866 in Saginaw, MI, Couse went on to study at the Art Institute of Chicago and later under William-Adolphe Bougereau at the Académie Julian in Paris. Upon his return to the United States from France after nearly 10 years abroad, he was introduced to the landscapes of the West while visiting his father-in-law’s sheep ranch in Oregon. In 1902, his friends Ernest Blumenschein and Joseph Henry Sharp invited Couse to visit Taos to paint. Over the following years, he visited each summer, spending the rest of his time in New York. Between 1922 and 1934, his works were used by the Santa Fe Railway as advertisements to draw tourists from the Eastern states. The artist died on April 26, 1936 in Albuquerque, NM. Today, Couse’s works are held in the collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D. The Phoenix Art Museum, and the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art at the University of Oklahoma, among others. This item is in the category “Art\Paintings”.
