Announcing Sundays with Clyfford Still

Everybody loves color field painter Clyfford Still.   As a new blog feature, every Sunday I will feature a different image from Still along with any snippets of information I may have gleaned during my wanderings on the web.

The Clyfford Still museum’s  website has this to say:

Described by many as the most anti-traditional of the Abstract Expressionists, Still is credited with laying the groundwork for the movement. Still’s shift from representational painting to abstraction occurred between 1938 and 1942, earlier than his colleagues, who continued to paint in figurative-surrealist styles well into the 1940s.
