Biography from the back:
William S. Green is an artist who knows and loves the Colorado Rockies. He was born in Central City and was educated in Trinidad and Denver Public Schools. He evidenced talent and interest in art from an early age.
His landscapes have gradually developed a certain atmospheric quality, a type of Impressionism which is convincing and sincere.
After graduating from Purdue University and the University of Denver, he spent the ensuing years in the field of secondary education. Before coming to Denver to teach science he was principal of the high school in Lafayette, Colorado and later Superintendent of Schools in Big Piney, Wyoming. His art training is a composite consisting of private lessons and university art classes plus continuous effort, self instruction, and study through the years.
He was president of the Denver Artist’s Guild in 1962-3. He served as chairman of exhibitions and has had paintings in their shows for many years. He was one of three local winners in the Motorola National Art Competition in 1960. His landscapes are perhaps best known to Dendrites and others through reproductions of his paintings in the calendars of the Clocks- Clerk Engraving Company. His landscapes have appeared in their calendars for the past twenty years.
