Educator

Ellsworth Kelly’s abstract forms are rooted in his observations of the world around him. In his words, "I did not want to ‘invent’ pictures, so my sources were in nature, which to me includes everything seen." Explore his print series Suite of Plant Lithographs and Suite of Twenty-Seven Color Lithographs, which, despite their apparent contrast, both emerge from Kelly’s distinct nature-based approach.
