Clyfford Still

March 17, 2010

One of my favorite American artists.  He is one of the leading figures of Abstract Expressionism.  This year, a new museum will open in Denver devoted to the pioneering work of Clyfford Still. The aptly named Clyfford Still Museum is an astonishing collection of 825 paintings and 1575 works on paper.

His work is very soothing.  Some of his paintings look like woven rugs.  Other closely resemble Chinese watercolors.
