Lot Essay

"Noland does not use a balanced-out type of composition, it is ultimately color that has the dramatic role; interlocking with the design, it unbalances a symmetrical picture, releases it at the top, closes it off, or establishes a directional sequence...the bands—the color—gain a heightened sense of presence, a vivid sense of immediacy." (K. Moffett, Kenneth Noland, New York, 1977, p. 65)
