Early Colorado Artists ~ A Rich Art History ~ 1850-1950

Colorado is not outdone by any other western state insofar as it’s rich art history and dozens of fine artists that painted and documented the early frontier culture and captured on canvas the incredible mountain vista’s that exist in this beautiful state.

Charles Partridge Adams, Charles Craig, Gerard Curtis Delano, Birger Sandzen, Raphael Lillywhite, William Henry Bancroft, George Elbert Burr, James Emery Greer are but a small sampling of historic artists of Colorado that produced works in the late 19th and early to mid 20th century. Much of the attention of collectors and dealers around the country is directed to it’s neighbor state New Mexico with the popularity of the Taos Six group and other early New Mexico artists that formed the Taos Society of Artists. Those of us who love and live in Colorado can quietly collect fine early paintings by these Colorado masters without all the media hoopla and high end prices that dominate the early New Mexico artists.

Raunig Art Enterprises seeks to purchase paintings by Colorado artists as well as other artist who have depicted Colorado images in their works.

If you have any Colorado art, feel free to contact Raunig Art Enterprises for a discreet evaluation.

Happy Collecting!
