Luce Center Label

London native Dorothy Brett was a prominent figure in the Taos art world of the 1930s. She had traveled there in 1924 with British writer D. H. Lawrence and his wife and decided to make it her home. Summer in the Pueblo is a fast study that captures the impact of brilliant fabrics against the dun-colored sand of southwestern cliffs.
