Lyrical Color

Colorfield Remix is in full swing. You can see an exhibition of the Washington Color School at The Phillips Collection in Washington, DC

Lyrical Color: Morris Louis, Gene Davis, Kenneth Noland and the Washington Color School
April 14–July 29, 2007

Approximately 20 paintings and works on paper from the museum's permanent collection will be on display as part of a citywide celebration of the Washington Color School artists, featuring works by Helen Frankenthaler, Morris Louis, Howard Mehring, Kenneth Noland, Alma Thomas, Gene Davis, Thomas Downing, Willem de Looper, and Sam Gilliam. By painting and pouring thinned acrylic paints onto unprimed canvases, these artists created abstract, layered shapes and stains that emphasized the optical effects of color relationships and the flatness of their work surface.
