Beauchamp was a figurative artist heavily influenced by abstract expressionism. He studied art with Boardman Robinson at the Colorado Springs Art Center. His studies were interrupted by WWII, during which he served in the Navy before completing his studies at the Colorado Springs Arts Center. Later, Beauchamp enrolled in the Cranbrook Academy of Art and took classes at the University of Denver, where he earned his B.F.A. Soon after, he studied with Hans Hofmann, a highly influential teacher of modern art and abstract expressionism. His work with Hans Hofmann lasted three years in both Provincetown, MA, and in Manhattan, NY. Beauchamp’s first exhibit was at the Tanager Gallery in New York, followed by shows at the Walker Art Center, Monique Knowlton, Graham Gallery, Long Point Gallery, M-13, The Sun Gallery, East End Gallery, Long Point Gallery, and in many other exhibits. Beauchamp was the recipient of numerous awards including the Fulbright Fellowship, two National Endowment Grants, the Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship and the Judith Rothschild Foundation Grant, which was given posthumously. His work is in numerous museum collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, NY, and the Museum of Modern Art, NY.
