Colorado Artist Frank Mechau (1904 - 1946) created magnificent, beautiful artworks that infused a love of the American West with an admiration for Italian Renaissance painters and an awareness of 20th Century modernism. Despite the fact that his artistic career spanned only twenty years, he produced paintings, murals, and drawings of exceptional potency and poignancy.
