Oscar Berninghaus, a St. Louis native, was already known for his expert draftsmanship when the Anheuser-Busch Brewing Company commissioned him to do the artwork for series of advertising lithographs based on scenes from the settlement of the West. Because of this commission, the artist’s reputation and interest in painting the American West soared. On his first Western journey, a chance encounter and a broken wagon wheel–so legend has it–led him to Taos. The light and color and the Pueblo way of life filled his senses. Berninghaus made Taos his home and became one of the founders of the Taos Society of Artists.
