Color Fields from the Collection of Audrey and David Mirvish
This catalogue appears with the first exhibition featuring Color Field painting to be held in Japan, curated by Kiyoko Maeda and comprising artworks from Canadian collectors Audrey and David Mirvish. With a focus on nine artists involved in Color Field, including Kenneth Noland, Frank Stella, Larry Poons, Anthony Caro, Helen Frankenthaler, and Jules Olitski, the book introduces works dating mainly from the 1960s onwards. These artists’ use of shaped canvases and unfamiliar techniques opened up new horizons in painting, as each explored the relationship between colour and painting in their own way, evolving the potential of non-compositional practice in the 20th century.
