The Clyfford Still Museum is delighted to be collaborating again with Rizzoli, who co-published our inaugural publication, Clyfford Still: The Artist's Museum, in 2012. Clyfford Still: The Late Works is a wonderful companion to both this earlier volume but also for our late works exhibition (Sept. 18, 2020 - Feb. 21, 2021, dates may be subject to change), which presents these little-seen works in the spotlight for the first time.

Still Life is a gorgeous collection of music for cello and guitar by internationally renowned composer Stephen Goss, performed by the Patterson/Sutton Duo.
In 2016 Kimberly Patterson (cello) and Patrick Sutton (guitar) played a stunning concert for our Music in the Galleries program. I had never heard the combination of cello and guitar before and was completely transfixed by the warmth of their sound, and by the lyricism and virtuosity of their playing. Also in the audience was internationally renowned composer Stephen Goss who came to CSM to hear Kimberly and Patrick play one of his compositions. Stephen was so taken by the Museum that when Kimberly and Patrick commissioned him to compose a piece for them he suggested that the inspiration come from Clyfford Still’s paintings. Two years later we were honored to host the premier performance of Still Life at the Museum, and carry a CD recording of the piece in our shop. It’s a stunning piece of music, full of color and dynamism, and the Patterson Sutton Duo are incredibly exciting to listen to. I absolutely love this CD and plan to purchase at least 6 copies for friends and family as gifts. I think Clyfford would be proud to have it in his collection too.

The Early Years: Clyfford Still in Canada, 1920 -1933
I was so impressed by Patricia Failing’s research and sense of humor in her essay which opens the book. It’s intriguing how contemporaries of Still overestimated how lonely he was in his early life, what little background in art he would’ve had. Failing tells a completely new story here about the support and regularity of Still’s art education, and her selections for the exhibition are wonderful peeks into Still’s early life. I particularly love the attention paid to Still’s early pastels and their relation to a series Still did in the 1960s.
