Ellsworth Kelly

1923-2015

Ellsworth Kelly is an American artist who expresses his vision through the mediums of painting, sculpture and printmaking. A member of the Minimalist school of art, Kelly is also viewed by some as being a part of the surrealist movement. Introduced by his grandmother to birdwatching as a child, Ellsworth Kelly eventually developed a hard-earned painting style. Known for his simplicity of form, he is often compared with fellow artists, John McLaughlin and Kenneth Noland.
