A Reservoir of Occurrences

A fresh vision of history

Stephen Batura has become well-known as a Colorado artist whose subject matter has remained close to home. His exquisite paintings are based upon the historical images of little-known Denver photographer Charles Lillybridge. His limited-palette paintings reflect the black-and-white source photographs, yet Batura alters the original images in order to economize the compositions and to reflect his painterly hand.
