Clyfford Still Museum

Work and personal archive of legendary Abstract Expressionist Clyfford Still.


Clyfford Still (1904–80) developed a new, powerful approach to painting in the years following World War II. A pioneering creator of the abstract expressionist movement that shifted the art world’s focus from paris to New York, Still is widely considered one of the most groundbreaking—yet mysterious—artists in American history. Fellow painter Robert Motherwell called his work “a bolt out of the blue.” Legendary artist Jackson Pollock famously said about Still’s genuine originality, “Still makes the rest of us look academic.”

Experience his creative revolution right before your eyes at the Clyfford Still Museum, home to 95% of his life’s work. Despite demand from some of the most influential collectors and museums across the country, Still refused to sell almost all of his work after a sudden rise to fame and prominence in 1951. He held some 825 paintings and 2,300 works on paper at the time of his death. Today they form the world’s most intact public collection of an American artist, exhibited with his personal archives in a breathtaking, intimate jewel-box museum. Don’t miss this stunning monument to the power of unbridled artistic expression.
