Purchase the Ground Breaking Biography of Olive Rush
All those interested in art, art history, southwest art, under-appreciated women artists will love this book. A quote from a reader, one of several 5-star reviews on Amazon. "Highly readable and scholarly, Gilmore's biography of Olive Rush takes us on an intimate journey to Santa Fe of the early twentieth century. A well documented treasure trove of unknown facts revolving around the genesis of the early New Mexican art colony, Olive's life fills in the blanks with strokes only a large and varied oeuvre can. Lovingly written and sprinkled throughout with artwork from Gilmore's personal collection, the book is a treasure box of its own. It is a beautiful very large cloth-bound hardback that you won't ever want to put down!"
