Color field paintings are expansive canvases washed with flat areas of solid color. Color as Field is the first exhibition to bring together the works of major color field painters. The show features about 40 color field paintings and explores their sources, meaning, and impact. The exhibition includes paintings by color field artists such as Helen Frankenthaler, Morris Louis, Kenneth Noland, Jules Olitski, Larry Poons, and Frank Stella, along with their precursors, important abstract expressionists, including Sam Francis, Mark Rothko, and Clyfford Still.
