This Friday at 5:30 p.m., the Fine Arts Center will unveil the long-awaited mural by Eric Bransby, the last living descendant of the Broadmoor Academy/Fine Arts Center school masters including Thomas Hart Benton, Boardman Robinson and Jean Charlot. Working in a style that originated with the social realists of the new deal, but with a line every bit as elegant as Egon Schiele’s, Bransby is a true local and national treasure. For a sneak peak of what you can expect, here’s a video interview with Bransby, a slide show of the work and a slide show of the work of Bransby’s Assistant, Trevor Thomas we featured last April.

    A fine piece. One correction to the written summary/introduction: Thoms Hart Benton was never an instructor at the Fine Arts Center/Broadmoor Art Academy. In MIssouri (not here), he was a major instructor of Eric Bransby (and–in Missouri and in New York City–a major instructor of other artists who also studied in Colorado SPrings).

    What a rich gift for our city! I love the sinewy quality of Bransby’s figures.
