Ellsworth Kelly

Painter, sculptor, printmaker, Ellsworth Kelly departed this life on Sunday, December 27th.  The world will be a much less colorful place without him here.

His work was simple in form and usually very colorful…

A pioneer of hard-edge painting, Kelly lived and painted in Paris during the 1940s, returning to New York in the early fifties.

While he was better known for his paintings, Kelly was also a sculptor throughout his career.

this one has always been a favorite of mine (MOMA)…

Plants and flowers were also subjects that Kelly drew throughout his career.

The plant studies are usually centered on the page and are executed with pencil or pen.

I really love them…
