COLOR AS FIELD:  AMERICAN PAINTING, 1950-1975

November 9, 2007-February 3, 2008        Denver Art Museum, Denver, CO

The exhibition emphasizes the artists first associated with Color Field ideas: Frankenthaler, Louis, and Kenneth Noland.  The work of Jules Olitski, another key member of the initial group of painters who developed this uniquely American approach to abstraction, will also be included in depth, along with that of younger painters who shared similar conceptions of what a painting could be, including Larry Poons and Frank Stella.  The potency of these ideas will be investigated through the work of a wider range of Color Field painters, including Jack Bush, Friedel Dzubas, Darby Bannard, Gene Davis, Sam Gilliam, and Ron Davis, many of whom worked outside of the New York area, who all discovered room for personal expression in the idea of structuring a painting with essentially unmodulated expanses of color. 

Approximately 40 works.
Fully illustrated catalogue, with essays by Karen Wilkin and Carl Belz, artists’ biographies and chronology.
