William Victor HIGGINS
aka Victor

American-born, he exhibited at St Ives Show Day in March 1912. At that time he was on his return from having spent some years in France and Munich, and was very much inspired by painting en plein air. In 1915 he moved to Taos, New Mexico and was elected to the elite Taos Society of Artists; he was admitted to the circle of friends around Mabel Dodge Luhan.
