Couse-Sharp Historic Site

Two visionary painters, whose art captured the Southwest. Explore the studios of E. I. Couse and J. H. Sharp, founding members of the Taos Society of Artists. These two painters helped create the cultural fabric of Taos as we know it today.

The historic Site includes not only the home and studio of E.I. Couse, but the garden designed by his wife, Virginia, the workshops of his son, Kibbey, and the two studios of his neighbor and fellow artist, Joseph Henry Sharp. The Site also reflects the contributions of a long history of previous owners. The Site sits on an escarpment that originally defined the defensive nature of Old Spanish Taos. Occupation of the site began when Juan de Luna built a family chapel there about 1835.  Read More
