Sinopsis:

With the rise of train travel from the latter 1880s through the 1920s, artists flocked to the Grand Canyon and to the pueblos of New Mexico and Arizona to paint unusual landscapes and exotic Indians. Recognizing that the mystique of the Southwest Indian country might help pull them out of a financial slump, the Santa Fe Railway set out to promote vacation packages that would appeal to the luxury traveler. As part of the plan and over a number of years, the Santa Fe acquired paintings and used them in a variety of ways. On calendars and lithographs, in hotel lobbies and dining cars, the Santa Fe's paintings were displayed around the country, planting wanderlust and thirst for adventure in the hearts of would-be tourists. This gorgeous coffee-table book contains 50 historic photographs and 80 full-color plates of paintings that created the southwestern mystique. Visions and Visionaries reproduces colorful paintings from the Santa Fe Collection, including works by American masters such as Blumenschein, Moran, Sharp, Higgins, Ufer, Couse, Akin, and Widforss.

From Library Journal:

The rise of the Southwest as a premier tourist destination is not simply a phenomenon of the 1980s and 1990s but dates to the turn of the 20th century. Included in this book of promotional art are 80 paintings of Native Americans and scenic beauty reproduced in color. Many of these romantic portrayals, by such artists as Thomas Moran, E. Irving Crouse, Bert Geer Phillips, and Ernest L. Blumenschein, were originally reproduced on calendars and as prints. An introductory essay not only examines the paintings within the context of a developing tourist industry but also discusses the birth of tourism, including the railroad, Fred Harvey Houses, and other accommodations inspired by Native American and Spanish design. Primarily a vehicle to present the Santa Fe's corporate collection, the light-hearted catalog will appeal to those interested in the art and history of the Southwest as well as railroad history.
