Taos Society of Artists was formed in 1915 to provide a link between artists in the tiny, isolated New mexico village and the major American art markets. The group framework also provided common thematic ground and fostered an intensive stylistic interation, which resulted in the emergence in the 1920's of a major school of American painting. It was disbanded in 1927.
