Frank Croft is essentially a self-taught artist, over the years he painted in his spare time; exhibiting his work in solo and group shows. Until recently however, Croft's artistic career has taken a back seat to his career as an art dealer, however one could not have existed without the other. Croft has dealt in the paintings of the Taos Society of Artists and Los Cinco Pintores for over twenty years. The artists of these schools, E.L. Blumenschein, E. Martin Hennings and Victor Higgins to name a few, are his main artistic inspiration. Handling paintings by these artists has given Croft a direct link to their technique and their subjects; subjects that Croft explores in his art. The unique landscape of northern New Mexico, its churches and its Native American culture, are all expressed in Croft's paintings.
