Victor Higgins (1884-1949)

Hiro Fine Art is interested in purchasing artworks by Victor Higgins.

Victor Higgins, born 1884 in Indiana, was known for his modern paintings of the Southwest Native American. He studied in Chicago and Europe and traveled to New York where he was greatly influenced by Marcel Duchamp’s work in the Armory show of 1913. He began experimenting with modern techniques in his work. He moved to New Mexico and became a member of the Taos, New Mexico Society of Artists where he painted scenes of untouched Pueblo life. However, his work was very different from the other artists of the group as he used elements of cubism, impressionism and abstraction to create geometric and simplified landscapes that played with form, rhythm and design. He died in Taos, New Mexico in 1949.
