Ellsworth Kelly’s plant drawings played a central role in his art. “The drawings from plant life seem to be the bridge to the way of seeing that brought about the paintings in 1949 that are the basis for all my later work,” Kelly wrote in 1969. “They are exact observations of the form of the leaf or flower or fruit seen. Nothing is changed or added: no shading, no surface marking.” This catalogue features over thirty drawings made between 1949 and 2008. Item #19691
