DAC Collection Artist Information
Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Kenneth Noland attended Black Mountain College in North Carolina between 1946 and 1948. He taught at the Washington Workshop Center of the Arts, where he met artist Morris Louis. Noland was part of a group of painters that described their paintings as Color Field work, which was later defined as Post-Painterly Abstraction. Noland's interest in pure color led him to create controlled, geometric abstract paintings, using stripes, chevrons, and target shapes of colors.
