The institutions that make up the Memphis Pink Palace Family of Museums are among the most architecturally interesting structures in the city, which makes them frequent subjects of works of art. Bill Branch is one artist who has captured some of our buildings in his chosen medium. Branch is a watercolor artist who prefers to paint in the open air (en plein air). He says, “I am led to subjects to paint that are architectural and manmade, or the great subjects of nature itself. My other passion is history, or local history. Since moving to Memphis, I have recorded some of the more recognizable sites of the city.”
