R.I.P. ELLSWORTH KELLY

American artist Ellsworth Kelly has died at the age of 92.  Mr. Kelly was born in Newburgh, NY a city on the Western banks of the Hudson River ( about an hour and a half drive by car).  The formative years of his creative talents were spent in Paris after Worth War II in the late 40's and early 50's.  Mr. Kelly benefitted from the GI Bill to support him as he honed his skill and found his voice as an abstract, modern artist.  His use of bold colors in large sections, was extremely avant garde at the time and rejected at first by much of the art community.  After almost a decade in Paris, Kelly would return to NY and set up a studio on the Lower East Side on NYC.   In the decades since his work gained world wide notoriety, the artist set up his studio in Spencertown, NY in Columbia County.   He would live there until his death on Sunday December 27th.  

To view several wonderful examples of his work - visit the gallery website of  www.MatthewMarks.com

The MOMA website also has extensive examples of Mr. Kelly's work.
