Arthur Kraft’s Garden of the God Watercolor Series

Two watercolor on paper from Arthur Kraft’s Garden of the God series.

Kraft’s time in Colorado is undocumented and remains a mystery to date. His specimen-like illustration of rocks found in Colorado Springs’ Garden of the Gods provides a remarkable contrast to the usual panoramic views of the monumental geologic formations in the park.
