Denverite: Denver just put most of its gorgeous Clyfford Still collection online for free

Denverite: Denver just put most of its gorgeous Clyfford Still collection online for free. “After he died in 1980, much of Clyfford Still’s artwork was sealed away from scholars and the public. The painter had wanted his enormous archive to remain complete, so he had ordered that it only be given to an American city that would create a permanent home for his work. Denver, of course, became that place when it opened the Clyfford Still Museum in 2011. And now it’s gone a step further: The museum has launched an expansive digital archive with high-resolution images of about 70 percent of the city’s Still collection.”
