The Plant Lithographs of Ellsworth Kelly



Temporary Exhibitions, Jaffe and Hall Galleries


The complete plant lithograph series of Ellsworth Kelly will be on view in this exhibition, documenting the artist's forty years of creating a rich variety of line drawings of plants, fruits, and flowers with exceptional simplicity and beauty. An American artist of world renown, Ellsworth Kelly, born in 1923, is distinguished for his pure minimalist style. The sixty lithographs featured in this exhibition provide a critical link to the artist's vision of nature and his practice of abstraction.

This exhibition was organized by the Grand Rapids Art Museum. Its presentation at the Hood Museum of Art is generously funded by the Ray Winfield Smith 1918 Fund.
