Kenneth Noland

Birth

1961

Noland is associated with Post-painterly abstraction: art which sprang from Abstract Expressionism but moved towards clarity of form and flat surface texture. In Birth, through the controlled use of color he sought to convey a sense of physical space on a two-dimensional plane. Noland gave this painting to the art critic Clement Greenberg upon the birth of Greenberg’s child.
