Black and White A.9

Black and White A.9, 1964 by Ellsworth Kelly is a lithograph on Rives BFK Paper.  This print is signed in pencil in the lower right, and numbered from the edition of 50 in the lower left.

As many critics have observed, Kelly’s work can be viewed in terms of what it is not. Unlike the painting of the abstraction expressionist and color field artists at the time, Kelly had no desire to make works involving expression, conceptual organization, depiction, or narrative. He was willing to drop traditional painting’s insistence on the square or rectangular frame to pursue departures of vision and experience. For this reason, Kelly is seen as a forerunner to artists such as Dan Flavin or Richard Serra, who focus on the experiential act of viewing art rather than the transmission of conceptual information.
