It has been more than thirty years since the last major publication appeared on this important Taos painter’s work, and this new traveling exhibition and catalogue are a welcome opportunity to reassess his career. Fahlman’s talk will consider how Dunton’s work reflects both traditional ideas of gender and that adventurous creature, the “New Woman.”
