Kenneth Noland


Kenneth Noland established himself as a prominent Color Field painter and leader of the Washington Color School of art. His art examines the relationship between colors in different formats and shapes. During the years of 1967 to 1970, Noland explored hues of colors depicted in horizontal stripes on large canvases. Via Ochre is a product of this time period with it’s unified composition of orange, yellow, white, and light blue bands varying in size that dominate the viewer’s field of vision.
