Frank Coburn

by Bradley J. Delaney

 

Living in the western United States, he was essentially insulated from the artistic revolution which swept through Europe and America's northeast in the early part of the twentieth century. Nonetheless, Coburn was profoundly influenced by the Impressionist movement, which prepared the ground for more developed forms of modernism in many ways.
