Description

Artist's Proof, 1 of 6.

Kelly was born in Newburgh, New York and studied at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. After living in Paris from 1948 to 1954, he moved to New York City, where he became a leading proponent of hard-edge abstraction. "Suite of Twenty-Seven Color Lithographs" was Kelly's first major print series. Initiated in 1964, this acclaimed suite is composed of several sequences of bold and colorful forms that were prominently featured in his paintings during this period. Due to the smaller scale of prints, lithography provided Kelly with the means to exhaustively indulge in the exploration of color and shape relationships.
