Taos Pre 1940
Albert Martinez, better known as Albert Looking Elk, entered the art world as a model when he was around twelve years old, and then as an adult, sold his own paintings to tourists. 

At first reluctantly posing for Irving Couse, a founding member of the Taos Society of Artists (TSA), Martinez went on to make a career modeling for artists.  Later, his wife and children would also work as artist models.

Looking Elk took his first and only art lessons from Oscar Berninghaus (showing 500 of 2592 characters).
