See one of America’s greatest abstract artists of the 20th century, Ellsworth Kelly


Born in Newburgh, New York, Kelly (1923–2015) is best known for his pioneering paintings, inspired by his observations of overlooked geometric shapes such as shadows on a wall or the architectural features of buildings.

Presenting 11 paintings, prints and reliefs from the Tate collection, the display reflects more than six decades of the artist’s career. It demonstrates his transformative impact on post-war abstraction through his use of intense colour, chance processes and shaped canvases, in which the painting becomes an object in its own right.
