Digital presentation - Still tells the story of Clyfford Still’s remarkable life and his indelible contribution to American art. Though not as well known as his contemporaries Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko, Still was one of the leaders of the Abstract Expressionist movement, yet deliberately turned his back on the art establishment at the height of his career.
His collection—more than 800 paintings and 1500 works on paper, many of which have never been viewed before—will be housed at the Clyfford Still Museum, opening in Denver. Through interviews with leading art and social historians, contemporary artists, and former students, this documentary by Amie Knox will reveal, for the first time, the detailed and compelling story of his life; the evolution of his work; and the reasons for his prominent and permanent place in American art.
In cooperation with the Clyfford Still Museum
