Dorothy Eugenie Brett Great Britain (1883 - 1977)
Dorothy Eugénie Brett was a British painter, remembered as much for her social life as for her art. Born into an aristocratic British family, she lived a sheltered early life. During her student years at the Slade School of Art, she associated with the Bloomsbury group. Among the people she met was novelist D. H. Lawrence, and it was at his invitation that she moved to Taos, New Mexico in 1924. She remained there for the rest of her life, becoming an American citizen in 1938.

Her work can be found in the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington D.C., in the Millicent Rogers Museum and the Harwood Museum of Art, both in Taos, at the New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe, the Roswell Museum and Art Center, Roswell, New Mexico and in many private collections.

Mary G. Blumenschein United States (1869-1958)
Born in New York City, Mary Shepard studied at the Adelphi Academy in Brooklyn and then at the Pratt Institute.[2] When she was only 17 years of age she left for Paris in 1886 where she worked with Raphaël Collin, an artist best known for establishing links with well-known artists working in Japan.
She entered the Salon d'Automne (Autumn Salon) in 1900 and was awarded a 3rd class honor. In 1900, she became the second woman artist (after Mary Cassatt) to win the Gold Medal.
In Paris in 1905, she met and married Ernest L. Blumenschein, also an artist. They moved back to New York in 1909 for the birth of their daughter, Helen. While there they taught at Pratt and did work for various magazines such as McClure’s, American and Century.[4]

Her husband discovered Taos, New Mexico after an accident stranded him there in 1898. While he made annual summer trips there Mary stayed in New York.[5] After the sale of a house she had inherited made them financially independent, they moved to Taos in 1919, eventually becoming part of the Taos Society of Artists.
