Clyfford Still

We have eclectic tastes. When we're not rising before dawn to watch the elk, or attending a model airplane rally (photos coming soon), we like to visit art museums. I learned of a new museum in Denver which houses the entire collection of the American abstract expressionist painter Clyfford Still.

Still's early work (1930s) is representational and the museum points out influences and similarities with the work of Van Gogh.

The monumental later works are pure examples of abstract expressionism.
The Clyfford Still Museum is right next door to another of Denver's Art Museums.
Art comes in many forms.
