Robert Beauchamp (pronounced “Bee-chum”) 1923-1995 was born in Denver, Colorado. Throughout his career he earned the most prestigious awards granted to visual artists, including a Fulbright Grant for Painting, a National Endowment for the Arts Grant, a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, a Pollack/Krasner Grant, and participation in a number of Whitney Museum Biennials. His work has been included in exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and was most recently featured in Inventing Downtown: Artist-Run Galleries in New York City 1952-1965, at the Grey Art Gallery, New York University.

We are most grateful to Nadine Valenti Beauchamp, widow of Robert Beauchamp, for generously donating over seven hundred works on paper by her late husband to the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Art Gallery at the College of the Holy Cross. This exhibition traces his long engagement with the medium of drawing and paintings on paper from the early days in New York to his death in 1995, highlighting a never ending deep engagement with the figure, along with imaginative combinations of personal symbols and narration.
