Lot Essay

"A color could be on edge of a picture or inside the space of a picture: the question of top, bottom, left, right became totally flexible as did the question of parallel or vertical or horizontal" (K. Noland in D. Walman, “Color, Format and Abstract Art: An Interview with Kenneth Noland,” Kenneth Noland: Paintings 1958-1989, Beverly Hills, 1989, p. 39).
