Perhaps the most important Taos-based illustrator, Frank Hoffman’s job as art director for the Chicago American—where he illustrated a wide variety of sporting and arts events—prepared him for his first trip West in 1916. After meeting one of his heroes—Leon Gaspard— in Taos, Hoffman stayed on, bought a small ranch two miles from town, and raised animals he would use as subjects for his paintings. He did work for The Saturday Evening Post and other notable periodicals and produced calendar art and advertising for The Great Northern Railway and Brown & Bigelow. Teddy Roosevelt at the Hunt shows the future President in his “Wilderness Hunter” period, prior to holding office, when he was roaming the West in search of adventure.
