Description: "Allen Tupper True is regarded as one of Colorado's premier native-born artists, and his art is as complex as it is enduring. He strived to 'see and feel the beauties of Colorado' translating that into his creations, said Peter Hassrick, Director of the Petrie Institute of Western American Art at the Denver Art Museum. ""His decades as an artist spanned illustrating and painting, and his reflections on the American West punctuate our everyday lives in the city of Denver and beyond." True's style of illustration was built on the famed Brandywine tradition, his easel paintings embodied the exuberance and chromatic vigor of British muralist Frank Brangwyn, and his murals were decorative and elegant, with a focus on Western subjects.
