Agnes Gabrielle Tait (1897-1981) was an American painter known for her portraits, landscapes, murals, still-lifes, and illustrations. Born in New York City,she first exhibited her paintings at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1914. Throughout her career, she participated in major exhibitions at art venues such as the Corcoran Gallery, the National Academy of Design, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and the Los Angeles County Museum. The artist traveled frequently to paint commissions or to gather inspiration for her own work and exotic images, particularly tropical scenes, became a common theme in her work. In 1941, she moved to Santa Fe, where she incorporated southwestern imagery into her figure, landscape, and genre paintings and lithographs.
