Mitchell-Innes & Nash, New York Acquired from the above by David Teiger in December 2010
"In these, perhaps more than in any of Noland's pictures at the time, image and means are inextricably fused. The length of the stripes determines one dimension of the painting, while the number of stripes, their widths and intervals, determines the other. Both dimensions are crucial."
Karen Wilkin, Kenneth Noland, New York 1990, p. 14
This work is in very good condition overall. The colors are fresh and vibrant. Approximately 26 inches from the left edge and 7 inches from the top edge, there is a faint 1 inch vertical line resulting from an inherent inconsistency in the canvas fibers. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, a small spot in the lower right corner fluoresces but is not the result of restoration and is not visible to the naked eye. Framed.
