1948 - Clyfford Still - Abstract Expressionist Painting - Posters
Clyfford Still (1904 - 1980) was an American painter associated with both the Abstract Expressionist and Color Field movements.
Clyfford is best known for his paintings that often feature craggy shapes; deep, dark hues; haunting, wiry shapes; and vertical “lifelines”. Clyford developed a technique of applying thick layers of paint onto the canvas using a palette knife, creating jagged flares of dark tones against lighter areas.
In 1944, Still moved to New York and began exhibiting alongside abstract painters such as Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, and Willem DeKooning. From this period onward, most of the artist’s works were titled with dates and numbers, as in his 1944–N No.2 (1944).View Artist Collection
