In 1973, energized and searching for artistic inspiration, Acheff discovered the small and inspiring town of Taos, and within several months of his arrival painted his first Native American artifact–related painting, a motif that would define his career. Forty-eight years later he is still in Taos, ever restless, while discovering and exploring new visions—and the excitement persists. Acheff’s style was originally influenced by the Dutch still-life painters from the 17th century and later by the American 19th-century Harnett trompe l’oeil movement.
