Catalogue Note

"Unquestionably heir to Matisse and Klee in the realm of color expression, [Noland] is to his generation what they were to their own.  Noland’s search for the ideal Platonic form has crystallized into an art in which color and form are held in perfect equilibrium.  The spare geometry of his form heightens the emotional impact of his color. The rational and the felt, distilled form and sensuous color intermesh to create a magic presence. His space is color. His color is space. Color is all."
