DENVER, CO.- A revelatory monograph, Clyfford Still: The Late Works investigates Abstract Expressionist Clyfford Still’s late works in painting and drawing. With essays by Dean Sobel and David Anfam, along with forewords by artists Alex Katz and Dorothea Rockburne on the notion of late work, Clyfford Still: The Late Works offers a thoughtful look at one the most influential and enigmatic painters of his time.

“This publication represents a significant milestone in the understanding of an artist who, over the course of the last 20 years of his life, shrouded his production in mystery,” said Dean Sobel, Clyfford Still Museum director. “Presented in depth for the first time, Still’s late paintings and drawings reveal a body of work that is far richer and more complex than previously understood.”

The catalog will accompany the groundbreaking exhibition, The Late Works: Clyfford Still in Maryland, set to open later this month. The catalog is now available at the Clyfford Still Museum Shop.

Opening September 18 to Clyfford Still Museum members and September 19 to the public, The Late Works: Clyfford Still in Maryland investigates the artist’s later works, both in painting and in drawing, made after his move to rural Maryland in 1961. This marked a particularly fertile period for Still; he made over 375 works on canvas and over 1,100 works on paper in Maryland before his death in 1980 at the age of 75. The exhibition will include approximately 40 paintings and 30 works on paper. The Late Works also represents the culmination of a nearly 10-year inventory, research, and conservation project in which many late works were unrolled, catalogued, and stretched, so they could be studied and made accessible as part of this exhibition.

Designed by Allied Works Architecture to display the revolutionary art of one of the 20th century’s greatest artists, the Clyfford Still Museum opened in November 2011 in Denver’s Golden Triangle Creative District. Considered one of the most important and mysterious painters of the 20th century, Clyfford Still (1904-1980) was among the first generation of abstract expressionist artists who developed a new and powerful approach to painting in the years during and immediately after World War II. The Museum’s collection represents 95% of the artist’s lifetime output. As the steward of Still’s art and legacy, the Museum’s mission is to preserve, exhibit, study, and foster engagement with its unique collections; generate outstanding exhibitions, scholarly research, educational and other cross-disciplinary programs that broaden the definition of a “single-artist” museum; and be a gathering place for the exploration of innovation and individual artistic endeavor.
