Remembering Santa Fe by Willard F. Clark
His early prints of scenes in this most unusual, special city. One person found this helpful. For people who enjoy Northern New Mexico today - especially Santa Fe and who want to understand better the creative forces that lead it to become a world renown art colony, this little book offers some brief glimpses into the past. I enjoyed reading Willard Clark's memories of Santa Fe in the 's; however perhaps because Clark wrote this many years later toward the end of his life there weren't as many details or as much elaboration as I would have liked.
Having lived in Northern New Mexico and visited Santa Fe often, it was interesting to read about some of the historic places that remain today even though some have been altered by the pressures of time, growth and modernity. A gift for my sister-in-law. Clark was her great grandfather. I love my purchase but it arrived damaged. A book must be wrapped in bubble wrap especially corners when it is sent through the mail.
The book is really a good beginning to understanding the feeling of the Southwest. The woodcut examples are really great. Santa Fe is known for art. Wherever you go downtown or on Canyon Road you see ersatz Georgia O'Keefes, epigonic Frederic Remingtons plus a few originals , larger-than-life Native American statuary a la Allan Houser again with a few originals , and tons of Southwestern schlock.
He fell in love with the area and never left. For his first fifteen years in Santa Fe he made his living as a printmaker and a printer. He then moved to Los Alamos and worked as a machinist for the Manhattan Project. Upon his retirement from that job he returned to Santa Fe.
Near the end of his life he began work on a book about his memories of Santa Fe.
It took him two years to make the forty-six wood engravings. After Clark suffered a stroke, his grandson finished the printing of the copies of "Recuerdos de Santa Fe, ". The prints are charming, although they are reproduced here in gray- rather than black-based tones and appear somewhat washed out.
My favorite is that of a funeral procession in Truchas, a donkey-drawn wagon carrying the casket top still open with a line of black-clad mourners strung out behind it, wending its way down the mountain from the chapel to the cemetery.

May 07, Kristin rated it it was amazing. The woodblock prints were perfect and the little memories to go with each print was a great companion. They weren't overly sentimental, but honest and to the point. Gave me some insight into Santa Fe in a different time. Special book and would make a great give for anyone who loves Santa Fe.
