"Ellsworth Kelly: Five Decades of Line, Form and Color"
1999-10-08 until 2000-01-02
Delaware Art Museum
Wilmington, DE, USA United States of America

Over half of the works in this exhibition of 21 paintings and reliefs date from Kelly's years in Paris, 1948 to 1954, a crucial period in which Kelly developed many of the principal themes and motifs that he would explore throughout the decades to follow. The remaining works, key paintings and reliefs created in New York and recently in the artist's studio, exemplify the breadth of scale, materials and stunning color that characterize his art today.

The exhibition reveals the development, themes, variations, unfolding logic and intuitive leaps of Kelly's career over almost 50 years. The Delaware Art Museum is pleased to present the only East Coast exhibition of this singular group of works by Ellsworth Kelly before they enter the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Ellsworth Kelly's work is one of the greatest achievements of American art of the postwar period and of abstract art in this century. His paintings and sculpture are unarguably a touchstone for artists of the mid- and late-20th century.
