The Couse Foundation and the Taos Society of Artists in Taos, New Mexico, are currently constructing a 5,000-square-foot research center to house historic documents, photographic prints and negatives, sketchbooks, original works of art, a library, and scholarly papers. To help fund the center, Session I of Hindman’s upcoming Western Paintings and Sculpture auction will feature 24 works benefiting its construction. Upon completion, the facility will be known as the Lunder Research Center. Other benefit items in the sale will assist the University of Denver’s collections fund, the Allan House Foundation, and the Grand Teton National Park Foundation.
Some of the featured works in the sale include one by E.I. Couse, which showcases his interest and focus on Native subjects. In the painting, a group watches trout rising between the ripples of a stream. Other notable lots in the sale include a portrait by Fritz Scholder, a red rock landscape by Ed Mell, a flag-bearing sculpture by Harry Jackson, textile works by Ramona Sakiestewa, and more.
