Julius Rolshoven (1858-1930)
The son of a goldsmith, Julius Rolshoven was born in Detroit in 1856. He studied art at the Cooper Union in New York, and then traveled to Europe to study in Germany at the Dusseldorf Academy, and in Paris at the Academie Julian. He subsequently began his painting career in Europe, but when WWI broke out, he returned to the United States. After marrying, he and his wife spent their honeymoon in New Mexico in 1916, a sojurn which was to last two years.
Rolshoven became a member of the Taos Society of Artists in 1917 and he set up a studio at the Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe. He was inclined to work out of doors, but often he worked under the shield of a tent because he found the light too extreme. Especially fascinated by the New Mexico landscape and the native population, the Pueblo Indians were the subject of many of his portraits. After the two years in Santa Fe, Rolshoven left for Italy where he worked, but continued to make regular visits to New Mexico regularly until his death in 1930.
