This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Barbara McClung (1917 – 2002)

A regional Denver, Colorado artist, Barbara McClung was born in Denver and lived there all her life.  As a child, she loved art and began to paint at a young age.  She attended St Louis School of Fine Art in the late 1930’s.  She went on to become a career art teacher in the Denver area, returning to her high school alma mater.  She retired from the Denver School System in the early 1980s. 

She also was a member of the Colorado Artists Guild.  She exhibited at Denver’s Own Gallery, a very prominent gallery in Larimer Square, in the 1950’s.  She is well known for painting landscapes of the Rocky Mountains and for concentrating on city scenes of Denver, capturing its transformation into a major city during the second half of the 20th century. 

Her husband was drafted into military service, shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor, and killed in action in the Pacific, a devastating turn in her life and one that caused a depression and lull in her art for a period of time.  She eventually recovered and began painting again leading to a prolific period. 

She is fondly remembered by her former students.  Very few of her paintings come to market and are mostly closely held in local private collections.
