Kenneth Noland 1924-2010

Color field painter Kenneth Noland died Tuesday at his home in Maine. He was 85. Championed by Clement Greenberg in the late 50’s as a successor to the abstract expressionists, Noland’s cool, color-filled geometry became a symbol and bone of contention in the see-saw struggles over painting, formalism and dominance in the New York art world over three decades. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston presented Kenneth Noland: The Nature of Color, a survey of four decades of Noland’s works, in 2004.
