|Victor Higgings was born in Indiana in 1884, and studied briefly in Chicago at the Art Institute. Higgins spent the years 1908-1912 studying in Munich, and returned to the states to work in Chicago, where he earned great acclaim for his exhibitions. He was greatly affected by the New York Armory Show in 1913, where he was first exposed to the American Modernism of Marsden Hartley. Following a move to Taos in 1915, Higgins concentrated on near-Cubist paintings of the landscape and Pueblo Indians of the area. Much more influenced by Modernism than his colleagues in Taos, Higgins enjoyed commercial success with a loyal following in Chicago.
