About

Signed and dated, 1933, in graphite, lower right. Presented in a custom frame, outer dimensions measure 20 ¼ x 26 ¾ x 1 inches. Image size is 16 x 23 inches. About the artist: After a successful career, Ross Braught disappeared from view for the last two decades of his life. No one was able to track down the mysterious figure, and thus his life’s work became the source of legend rather than of history. A 20th-century Romantic, Braught felt a life force coursing through all of creation. Like an artful Prospero, he celebrated the strange and wild and transformed the ordinary into mesmerizing wonder. Braught accepted a position at the Kansas City Art Institute as head of painting in 1931. During the summers, he traveled to the Dakota Badlands, the Grand Canyon, and the Colorado Rockies, and the experience of Western spaces prompted more adventurous artistic compositions. The Braughts traveled to Tortola in the British Virgin Islands and moved there for seven years in 1939. The island – its jungles and its people – provided a deep well of inspiration for Braught as the exotic pushed him to find new means of expression: “serious hunting for the real beauty of life.” Due to shortages because of the war, Braught took to drawing with the children’s pencils available. The resulting works are testimony to his capacity to create infinitely complex works with such a simple tool – verification of Thomas Hart Benton’s assertion that Braught was the greatest draughtsman of his age.
