KENNETH NOLAND "CIRCLE I", 1978
Kenneth Noland (1924 – 2010) is one of the most important contributors to the evolution of American abstraction, specifically as a leading figure in the Color-Field movement.
Unlike many of his contemporaries, Noland started exploring printmaking relatively late in his career. However once initiated he became an active and experimental printmaker, working with different techniques and aesthetics.
From April to August 1978, Kenneth Noland began a particularly intense and fruitful period of both papermaking and printmaking at Tyler Graphics in Bedford, New York. Contrary to the conventional approach of printmaking, most of Noland's creations were monotypes - each work was unique.
This example from the Circle I-35 Series is a paradigm of Noland's printmaking. The work is composed of five layers of colored pulp with elements of lithography printing.
Regardless of medium, Noland was always presenting the dynamism of how color interacts with it neighbors. Here the centre circle is a vibrant celadon green, neighboured by a rich sea-foam green. Together the colors in the circle create a glowing orb effect for a soft but striking contrast to the pale egg-nog background color.
Noland's targets are some of the most iconic and desirable works in the 20th century art canon. This piece is fine example of one of Noland's cherished targets, but also a treasure from his period of printmaking.
