Lot Details

This untitled work by Robert Beauchamp exemplifies the artist’s incredible use of color and thickly laid brushstrokes. The figure is expressed in a kaleidoscopic array of paints, faceted across the entire composition and creating a sumptuously colored work, characteristic of Beauchamp’s iconic style.

Born in Denver, Colorado, Robert Beauchamp (1923-1995) is known for his vividly colored figurative and abstracted works, executed in an incredibly expressionistic style. His imagery was widely varied from fantastical beasts and exotic creatures, to portraits of human subjects. Beauchamp’s flourishing brushwork and intense palette are reminiscent of Abstract Expressionism, with splatters of paint often obscuring his figurative subjects. He studied with Boardman Robinson in Colorado and went on to be a student of Hans Hofmann’s for three years in both Provincetown, Massachusetts as well as New York. Beauchamp has received numerous awards over the course of his career including the Guggenheim Fellowship in 1974, the National Foundation of the Arts Grant in 1966, and Fulbright Grant for Painting in 1959, among others.
