Write Up: Born in Nevada and raised in California, Warren Rollins studied at the San Francisco School of Design then moved to San Diego where he began to paint Native American scenes. Rollins traveled the West with his wife and family, and his work attracted attention. In 1917, the Santa Fe Railroad set him up in a studio overlooking the Grand Canyon. Rollins painted in Taos with his good friend, E.I. Couse, but he will forever be known as the “Dean of the Santa Fe Art Colony.” Blue Canyon, Arizona has the easy pastel feel you find in Rollins, of an enduring world glimpsed through gauze.
