Painter Kenneth Noland helped pioneer color field painting alongside fellow trailblazers including Ellsworth Kelly, Morris Louis, and Sam Gilliam. His works often feature shaped canvases, bold blocks of color, and simple patterns of chevrons, stripes, and bull’s-eyes. Noland pushed American abstract painting beyond the boundaries of Abstract Expressionism—instead of focusing on gestures and energetic lines, he conducted more conceptual experiments with color, form, and pared-back compositions that espoused flatness and a minimalist sensibility. Noland’s work has been exhibited in New York, Paris, Los Angeles, London, Tokyo, Berlin, and Zürich and belongs in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Centre Pompidou, the Guggenheim Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Kunstmuseum Basel, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art. Noland’s paintings have sold for up to seven figures at auction.
