Clyfford Still brought the art of abstract expressionism to the West Coast, and his best works are housed at a Denver museum bearing his name. In his will, Still stated that his entire estate should be given to an American city for a museum that would focus entirely on his work. Denver was lucky enough to get that estate, which includes the works from the estate of Still’s widow.
The collection includes over 800 paintings from all eras of Still’s career, including his student and Depression-era works. His first move into abstraction are also included in the collection, moving into his works of “high” abstract expressionism. A rotating exhibit will further educate visitors on the abstract expressionist movement.
The Clyfford Still Museum is open Tuesdays through Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Fridays until 8 p.m.
