    Literature
    S.H. McGarry, Honoring The Western Tradition: The L.D. "Brink" Brinkman Collection, Kerrville, Texas, 2003, p. 133, illustrated.

    In a letter to L.D. Brinkman, the artist wrote of Santa Fe Arrival, "I have always been fascinated with the Santa Fe Trail. Every time I go down to the Plaza in Santa Fe I cannot help but think of how it must have looked a hundred years ago. In this scene I perceived a stagecoach arriving late night in old Santa Fe. The moonlight, plus the play of light from the lantern made it an interesting painting to do."1
