Painter Richard Lytle was included in the famous “Sixteen Americans” exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1959. But unlike his counterparts Frank Stella and Ellsworth Kelly, who favored hard-edged, Minimalist painting, Lytle has continued to draw inspiration from the organic world throughout his career. A graduate of the Cooper Union and the Yale School of Art (where he remained a valued member of the faculty for four decades), Lytle began his career as an assistant to Josef Albers in basic drawing and color instruction. Mastery of color is a hallmark of Lytle’s work, whether in his detailed studies of flora in watercolor and pencil or in his fantastical botanical landscapes, so detailed that they begin to loop back into abstraction.
