Juan Mirabal is an American who made a realistic depiction of pueblo ceremonial dances. He was influenced by the modern art and the 1930’s Cubism. A painter named Marjorie Eaton schooled in modernism in Europe and moved to Taos during the late 1920’s to early 1930’s. Eaten was enamoured by Mirabal’s brilliance and he might have been the one who thought Juan modernism. Mirabal painted a massive mural in a home that’s now a Bed & Breakfast Inn. He is known for the liveliness he brought to his artwork both in colour and composition. Mirabal’s paintings are of highly evocative power and the beauty represented by the dances; his pictures are also captivating for their modernist flavour.
