Catalogue Note

"Through the 40s, Reinhardt’s paintings distinguished themselves from European abstraction through a total occupation with surface rather than readable formal structure, without compositional elements that outweigh one another. The paintings were organized by signs, either of a geometric order, of small rectangles of color fitting into one another, or of a blurred and less clearly delimited order, creating together the characteristics of “all-over” painting."
Alfred Pacqument in Exh. Cat. Paris, Galeries nationales du Grand Palais, Ad Reinhardt, 1973
