    About The Work

    Like many artists who had served in the US military during WWII, Kelly took advantage of the G.I. Bill and moved to Paris in the late 1940s returning to the US in 1954. By the end of the decade, he had established his reputation as part of the new wave of artists rejecting the dominance of abstract expressionism in American art. Kelly was notably included in the legendary exhibition 16 Americans at the MoMA (NYC)

    Kelly was one of the first artists, along with Frank Stella, to use unconventional creatively shaped canvases, contributing to the nascent genre of Minimalism. Similar to Stella, Kelly began to explore printmaking in the 1960s and it became an essential part of his practice. 

    "Red Blue" is an early example of Kelly's printmaking and an exemplary artwork that demonstrates the artist's stunning exploration of color, shape, and space.

    The screenprint was included in the legendary X + X (Ten Works by Ten Painters) portfolio from 1964, which featured works by Frank Stella, Robert Motherwell, and Andy Warhol, among others. Today, the portfolio is considered one of the best representations of both printmaking of the era created by the leading American artists.
