Ernest Knee Photographs of 726 Camino del Monte Sol, Santa Fe (NM)
Scope and Content
- 20th century
- Knee, Ernest, 1907-1982 (Person)
Knee moved to California during the war, where he created a photography department for Howard Hughes. Knee moved back to Santa Fe in 1949. The market for photography had declined by then, so he put his woodworking skills to use, establishing the Spanish Pueblo Doors company in downtown Santa Fe (1950-1970). After selling the business, he returned to photography. He set up a darkroom, printed, and exhibited his photographs from earlier years. Knee's photographs have been acquired and exhibited at major museums across the country including the George Eastman House, Rochester, NY; Museum of Modern Art, NY; Center for Creative Photography, Tucson, AZ; Santa Barbara Museum of Art, CA; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA; Princeton University of Art, Princeton, NJ; New Orleans Museum of Art, LA; University of New Mexico, NM; New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe, NM; Chicago Art Institute.
