Carlos Vierra (1876 – 1937) studied at the Mark Hopkins Institute (now part of the San Francisco Art Institute) under Gottardo Piazzoni in the 1890s, and also studied illustration in New York. He was the first resident artist in New Mexico and one of the first 3 members of the Santa Fe Art Colony. He was a strong advocate for preserving landmark buildings in New Mexico and promoted a modern architectural style now called the Pueblo Revival Style architecture that reflects this historic architectural heritage.
