  • The Gift

    In January 2016, the University of Denver was pleased to accept the Madden Collection as a permanent addition to the University’s holdings.  John W. Madden, Jr., developer of the Fiddler's Green campus in Greenwood Village, CO., donated a collection of 133 artworks valued at $10 million to the University of Denver. The Madden Collection at the University of Denver includes artworks by artists ranging from pioneering Western painters Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran, to American masters Thomas Hart Benton and Robert Rauschenberg, to contemporary Chinese-born American painter Hung Liu. Reflecting the personal collecting interests of Mr. Madden and his late wife Marjorie, the collection is also rich in outstanding works by Italian painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. European works include Italian Impressionists, such as Francesco Gioli and Federico Zandomeneghi, and British master J.M.W. Turner.
