By the numbers – Clyfford Still Museum

By the numbers

The Clyfford and Patricia Still Collections, held by the City and County of Denver, contain approximately 825 paintings and over 2,300 works on paper, including:

  • 100 paintings dating from 1920–1943: Pictures from Still’s student years, Depression-era works, Surrealist-inspired works, and first forays into abstraction
  • 350 paintings dating from 1944–1960: Still’s “breakthrough period” and the years of “high” Abstract Expressionism, an era when many canvases span over ten-by-fourteen feet
  • 375 paintings dating from 1961–1979: Later works, most of which have never been exhibited
  • Works on paper spanning all aspects of Still’s career in such media as pastel, crayon, charcoal, gouache, tempera, graphite, and pen and ink—these also have very seldom been exhibited.
