Catalogue Note

"Like arrowheads moving down or across the picture surface, this dramatic layout imposed a bold sense of direction, forcing Noland to find colours that take advantage of the abrupt transition from one band to the next... arranging those hues with dazzling exactitude" (Terry Fenton cited in: Exh. Cat., New York, Salander-O'Reilly Galleries, Inc., Kenneth Noland: An Important Exhibition of Paintings from 1958 through 1989, 1989, p. 11).
