Taos Indians on Mesa
Priscilla C. and Joseph N. Tate Collection
In 2004, University of Oklahoma President David L. Boren announced the donation of an important collection of Southwestern art - 12 masterworks by members of the Taos Society of Artists - to the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art by Priscilla C. and Joseph N. Tate of Tulsa. The collection is extremely strong with paintings of superior quality ranging from Kenneth Adams to Walter Ufer. The Tate Collection complements the museum’s existing collection of works by the Taos Society of Artists in the Thams and Fleischaker Collections.
