Ellsworth Kelly has been a widely influential force in the post-war art world. He first rose to critical acclaim in the 1950s with his bright, multi-paneled and largely monochromatic canvases. Maintaining a persistent focus on the dynamic relationships between shape, form and color, Kelly was one of the first artists to create irregularly shaped canvases.

About Ellsworth Kelly

American painter, sculptor and printmaker, Ellsworth Kelly was born May 31, 1923, in Newburgh, New York. Throughout his career, he crossed the traditional boundaries between painting, sculpture and architecture. Kelly studied at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, from 1941 to 1943, and after three years of military service, he attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, from 1946 to 1947. The following year, Kelly went to France and enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris under the G.I. Bill, although he attended classes infrequently. In France, he discovered Romanesque art and architecture and Byzantine art. Kelly was also introduced to Surrealism and Neo-Plasticism, which led him to experiment with automatic drawing and geometric abstraction.
