ellsworth kelly numbers amongst the most important protagonists of colour field painting. throughout all his creative periods, he tried out new ideas for paintings in black and white versions as well. the retrospective is devoted to about 50 black-and-white pictures and reliefs spanning the years 1948–2010 and is complemented by a concise selection of drawings, collages and photographs.
“black & white” is the first comprehensive retrospective of the black-and-white works by ellsworth kelly.
