The Legacy
of Clyfford Still

Clyfford Still had a unique artistic vision and was unwilling to compromise it for money or recognition. As he evolved as an artist, Still’s works transitioned from recognizable images or landscapes to more abstract shapes, colors, and lines to express an idea or feeling on huge canvases. He wanted people to get lost in his works and make their own interpretations of his art.

Follow your own path to learn more about Still, his art, what inspired him, and see things from a new perspective.
