The American Painting gallery opened in the adjacent space a few years after the Native American gallery. The first showing in the new painting galleries was devoted to John F. Carlson and the artists of the Broadmoor Academy. The gallery is now the recognized authority on work by the Broadmoor Academy artists, particularly the paintings of Birger Sandzen. In addition to Broadmoor artists, the gallery specializes in early Colorado paintings by artists including Charles Partridge Adams as well as 20th century artists including Vance Kirkland and members of the Denver Artists Guild and the Fifteen Colorado Artists. The holdings have expanded to include New Mexico art including the Taos Founders and Santa Fe Art Colony, important Western paintings, early California plein-air paintings as well as American modernist works.
We offer consultation services for private, corporate and public collections and also provide appraisals.
