Signed: "J.A. Fleck", l/l

Joseph Amadeus Fleck received his formal art education at the Royal Art Academy in his native Austria & at the Royal Art Academy in Munich. He came to the United States in 1922. His attendance at an exhibition in Kansas City of the Taos Society of Artists compelled him to settle in Taos, New Mexico in 1924 or 1925. In 1942 he left to become Dean of Fine Arts & artist in residence at the University of Missouri in Kansas. After four years, he returned to Taos where he remained until shortly before his death in 1977. Although academically trained, his painting progressively became freer & expressive. Talpa Valley is a prime example of his evolution in technique in depicting the people, land & animals of Northern New Mexico.
