Eanger Irving Couse painted this scene one year after his first trip to Taos. Like other eastern artists, he was especially struck by the intense light and stark contrasts of northern New Mexico. Couse painted Walpi Pueblo as a quick sketch, capturing the sudden, lonely chill that accompanies the clouds at higher elevations.
