Gene Kloss, The Visitor's Tale, Etching
Item Details
Description
Title: The Visitor's Tale.
Artist: Gene Kloss (1903-1996)
Etching and drypoint, 1971.
Edition 35.
Signed and titled in pencil, inscribed "artist's proof."
Image size 13 13/16 x 9 7/8 " (35.1 x 25.1 cm).

Gene Kloss, born Alice Geneva "Gene" Glasier, was an American painter and printmaker born in Oakland, California. She learned etching while attending the University of California at Berkeley. She would use it to capture the life and beauty of the American Southwest for the remainder of her life. Kloss was first introduced to the region during her honeymoon in 1925, after which she and her husband would spend every summer in Taos, New Mexico until they settled there permanently in 1945.

Kloss was particularly attracted to the Pueblo communities, where she spent a great deal of time observing and learning from the people. Her delicate etchings capture the tribes in a gentle and thoughtful manner, depicting elements that ranged from simple day-to-day tasks to seldom observed, sacred ceremonies. It was her compassion and love not just for the people, but for the land they lived upon that made her welcome in many of the communities.
