Ellsworth Kelly created Diagonal with Curve XII, Blue #611 for his friends, Werner Feibes and James Schmitt. In conjunction with the opening of the Feibes & Schmitt Gallery, this exhibition of more than 70 prints examines Kelly’s experimentation with curved fields of color, from tight ellipses and shapes with rounded corners to broad arcs and segments. Many of these geometric shapes derived from his simple line-drawn images of nature. Twenty-six prints from his Plant Series will form a small companion exhibition in the Whitney-Renz Gallery. All the works come from the extensive collection of Ellsworth Kelly prints belonging to the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation in Portland, Oregon.
