"Ellsworth Kelly: The Early Drawings"
1999-06-12 until 1999-08-15
The High Museum
Atlanta, GA, USA United States of America

Ellsworth Kelly is considered one of America's greatest living artists. He is part of a generation of artists who came of age in the years immediately after World War II. As the passionate gestures of Abstract Expressionism swept this country, Kelly instead took his cues from European art from before the war. He chose to live in Paris from 1948 to 1954, and during these years he developed a rigorously spare and elegant approach to abstraction.

This experimental period is featured in the exhibition Ellsworth Kelly: The Early Drawings, 1948-1955. The exhibition includes approximately two hundred drawings and collages–many of which have never been exhibited before–that present insight into the thought process of a maturing artist. A catalogue written by Yve-Alain Bois, the exhibition's curator, accompanies the show.

Ellsworth Kelly: The Early Drawings, 1948-1955 was organized by the Harvard University Art Museums, Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the Kunstmuseum Winterthur, Switzerland. This exhibition is sponsored, in part, by the Douglas S. Cramer Foundation, Agnes Gund and Daniel Shapiro, and Emily Rauh Pulitzer. In Atlanta, this exhibition is made possible by the generous support of Mr. and Mrs. Philip A. Rhodes.
