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.

Arthur Kraft 1959: Well-Known K.C. Artist Is Beaten and Robbed

Newspaper clipping from the Lawrence Daily Journal-World – October 8, 1959:

Well-Known K.C. Artist Is Beaten and Robbed
Arthur Kraft, 38, well known Kansas City artist, was beaten and robbed in a parking lot Wednesday night.

Kraft was named by the Junior Chamber of Commerce as one of the 10 outstanding young men in the nation in 1954.

Police said he apparently was struck repeatedly on the head and face with a pistol butt as he started to enter his car at 5050 Main. His billfold, containing $20, and a watch were taken.

He was taken to a hospital, where attendants said his condition was satisfactory.

Kraft is working on several sculptures for a new shopping center in Indianapolis and on murals for Kansas City’s new public library.
