- 2014 December Auction (PS $108,000)
Signed: 'O.E. Berninghaus, Taos, NM,' l/r
Mary Carroll Nelson states in The Legendary Artist of Taos that Berninghaus found the Ranchitos Valley, with its landscapes of fall and spring color, particularly appealing to his palette. She observed that he captured a quality of light that gave a pastel tone to the landscape. “He would look upon a scene and find it paintable, then bring his commendable talent to be: recreating it.” Laura N. Bickerstaff, in Pioneer Artists of Taos, noted that in the artist’s later years he withdrew to a more distant viewpoint so that the scene was wider, and the figures smaller.
