Denver Artist Discovered After His Death

Listen Now

By John Edward Daley

You’ve probably never heard of Denver painter Edward Goldman. And he wanted it that way. Art was his pastime... something he did when he wasn’t running his electrical wholesale business. He was also very private about his painting, which he did at home in a basement studio. Sometimes he’d create huge, geometric paintings in bright colors; other times, muted, photorealistic paintings of Lower Downtown Denver, when it was in decay in the 1970’s and 80’s. Goldman died last year and his work is finally seeing the light of day, at David Cook Fine Art in Denver. Curator Maggie Ross gave Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner a guided tour of Goldman's paintings.

The exhibit is on display through July 15.
