Organized by Elizabeth Reede, Assistant Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture.

This exhibition, part of an ongoing series highlighting noteworthy aspects of the Museum’s collection, is made possible by BNP Paribas.

This single-gallery installation is devoted to thirteen paintings and drawings by Ellsworth Kelly. Three of the paintings are on view for the first time and are recent acquisitions: Relief with Blue (1950), a gift from Donald L. Bryant, Jr., a Museum Trustee; Dominican (1952), a gift from the artist; and Two Whites (1959), a gift from James and Kathy Goodman. In addition to these pivotal works from the 1950s, the gallery features a major work from the 1980s, Three Panels: Orange, Dark Gray, Green (1986). Composed of three shaped canvases, it spans thirty-four feet of the gallery wall. Over the past five decades, Kelly has redefined abstraction by examining the shapes and colors found in natural and man-made forms, producing a visually and philosophically sophisticated body of work.
