Warren Rollins (1861-1962)
Warren Rollins was born in Carson City, Nevada, in 1861, and would come be known as the “Dean of the Santa Fe art colony.” Rollins studied at the San Francisco School of Design, where he also served as assistant director. In 1887 he moved to San Diego, where he became interested in Indian subject matter, which prompted extensive travels throughout the American West.
Rollins was one of the first anglo-artists to arrive in Taos in 1893, and ultimately settled in Santa Fe where he distinguished himself as an art instructor at the Palace of the Governors, and as the first president of the Santa Fe Art Club. From 1910 to 1917 Rollins lived and painted in Pasadena until the Santa Fe Railway lured him to Arizona with a studio on the rim of the Grand Canyon, a favorite subject of the artist. Warren Rollins died in Winslow, Arizona at the age of 100.
