* Udall, Sharyn Rohlfsen. "Marsden Hartley (1877-1943)." p.29- 52. In Modernist painting in New Mexico, 1913-1935. Albuquerque, NM: University of New Mexico Press, 1984.

"Sparked by the writing and enthusiasm of Mary Austin and, equally significant, the efforts of poet-editor Alice Corbin Henderson, the art community in Santa Fe grew in size and influence. Mrs. Austin and Mrs. Henderson both attracted prominent literary figures, who were usually persuaded to lecture in the new museum's auditorium. Some who visited during the twenties were Vachel Lindsay, Carl Sandburg, Arthur Davison Ficke, and Witter Bynner (who stayed to become a permanent resident)." p.15.

"Hartley found the majority of artists in Taos insufferable and their painting even worse. He complained in a letter to [poet] Harriet Moore that Taos was 'the stupidest place I ever fell into. Lovely landscape here and there, but the society of cheap artists from Chicago and New York makes the place impossible, and they tell themselves that the great art of America is from Taos' ... Given Hartley's disdain, it is no surprise that the old-guard Taos painters liked neither the painter nor his work." p.41.

"Among Santa Fe's literary and artistic community ... Mrs. Henderson was also an enthusiast. She wrote on the subject of 'primitive' poetry and in 1928 included Hartley's poem 'The festival of the corn' in her southwestern anthology The Turquoise Trail." p.45.
