Gerald Cassidy (1869-1934) was an early 20th-century artist, muralist, and designer who, along with his wife, Ina Sizer Cassidy, lived in Santa Fe starting in 1912. They are attributed with having initiated the Santa Fe art school and movement working with other artists, as well as attracting several to move to the region. Cassidy housed numerous art students next door to his home in what today is called the Cassidy Compound, a series of condominiums individually owned. The Gerald Cassidy home has been completely and meticulously renovated and updated making it truly one of the most spectacular historic homes available in Santa Fe today. Furnishings, artwork, and accessories are available by separate treaty.
