Kenneth Noland 1924-2010

"Kenneth Noland, whose brilliantly colored concentric circles, chevrons and stripes were among the most recognized and admired signatures of the postwar style of abstraction known as Color Field painting, died Tuesday at his home in Port Clyde, Me. He was 85."
NY Times article

I have chosen a less familiar Noland which would seem to fit the current reduction trend in America. I also draw your attention to the fact that Jazz is played on arriving at his website. I am not knowledgeable enough of the genre to know the tune or the artist..... RIP ol' Jazzer.
