Denver’s Colorado Public Television – KBDI-PBS produced an hour-long documentary on Allen Tupper True’s life, times and artistic achievements, titled Allen True’s West.

KBDI’s Allen True’s West showcases the life and art of Colorado’s foremost muralist, whose later work captured the character of a region in transition from wild frontier to the modern West. It includes shots of his major murals in their architectural settings, many of his easel paintings and illustrations, as well as photographs True took of Native Americans, cowboys, surveyors, lumbermen and other Western pioneers and settlers. The program also includes interviews with renowned curator and Western art expert Peter Hassrick, Missouri historian Robert Priddy, Allen True’s daughter Edith True Marbut and granddaughter Victoria Tupper Kirby.

This is a perfect gift for anyone interested in the history of the West and Western art.
