Lot Essay

"Like color, quality in art is impossible to grasp with words; one can only point. But I think Noland has already established himself as one of the real master painters of our century. Few modern artists have achieved the level of quality that he has attained and even fewer have maintained it in so many pictures. At the age of fifty-two, Noland now has a great challenge: to sustain a standard of quality in abstract painting that he himself has helped to establish" (K. Moffett, Kenneth Noland, New York, 1977, pp. 86).
