A term originating in the late 1950s for abstract paintings characterized by sharply defined geometric areas of flat colors conveying little or no depth, such as works by Ellsworth Kelly, Kenneth Noland, Ad Reinhardt, and Barnett Newman. In addition to historical paintings, this term can be used to describe the appearance of contemporary works as well as sculptures.
