kenneth noland


As a leading figure of the Color Field movement in the 1960s, Kenneth Noland (1924–2010) made an essential contribution to American abstraction. His iconic works feature signature forms, including concentric circles, patterned chevrons, and grids.

In 1978, he began a particularly intense and fruitful period of creating at Tyler Graphics in Bedford, New York. He became an active and dedicated printmaker (and papermaker) working with different techniques and styles that defied conventional approaches.  

This example from the Circle II-34 series is a paradigm of both Noland's printmaking and aesthetic. The work is composed of five layers of colored pulp with elements of lithography printing. The vibrant grapefruit and cherry red center creates a glowing orb against the slate colored base or outer ring. The result is both alluring and hypnotic.

Noland's targets are some of the most iconic and desirable works in the 20th-century art canon. This piece is a fine example of one of his cherished targets, as well as a treasure from a pivotal period of his career.
