Write Up: One of the earliest artists to reside in Santa Fe, Sheldon Parsons left a successful career painting portraits in New York in 1913 to make a new start after the death of his wife and to find a climate conducive to his tuberculosis. Parsons studied with William Merritt Chase, and something of this influence lingers in impressionistic New Mexico landscapes such as Santa Fe Baldy, Nambe, which depicts the 12,000 foot Santa Fe Baldy summit from the Nambe Pueblo north of the artist’s home base.
