"Touch the country of New Mexico and you will never be the same again." —√¢‚Ç¨¬ØD.H. Lawrence, c. 1917. Tipping the scales with the long list of writers and artists who have been drawn to Santa Fe, the oldest capital city in the United States is known the world over as a center for the arts and has been designated as a UNESCO Creative City in Design, Crafts and Folk Art. In 2012, it was listed by CBS MoneyWatch and U.S. News as one of the best places to retire in the country. From 1914 to this day, the beauty, and some say spirituality of the natural environment in Sante Fe area have drawn the likes of D.H. Lawrence, Georgia O’Keeffe, Ansel Adams, Andrew Dasburg, John Marin, Marsden Hartley and many other creative minds in the world of art, literature and music. That history combined with artists who have followed into the 21st century has been long celebrated within the Matteucci Gallery Compound in Santa Fe, which is now for sale.
