Becky Salsbury James, the American painter, was born of American parents traveling with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. She settled in New York City, where she married photographer Paul Strand. She and Strand showed their works at Alfred Stieglitz’s galleries and were close to Stieglitz and Georgia O’Keefe. Following her divorce from Strand, James moved to Taos where she fell in with a group of friends that included Mabel Dodge Luhan, Dorothy Brett, and Frieda Lawrence. She was so taken by the hospitality of Mabel Dodge Luhan that she urged her Manhattan friend Georgia O’Keefe to come to the Southwest, observing that “Georgia…would do some great things.” In 1937 she married William James, a Denver businessman, then operating the Kit Carson Trading Company in Taos. She remained in Taos until her death in 1968. NOTE: Property is subject to a lease that expires October 31, 2029.
