Kenneth Noland
Kenneth Noland, american painter and sculptor, was a student of Ilya Bolotowsky, who taught him the neo-plastic and Mondrian's theories, he attended also a university course given by Joseph Albers, who although was considered by Noland rigid and doctrinal, had the merit to approach him at the Bauhaus thought. Some artistic periods of Nolan seem to be much affected by the use of color also studied on the works of Paul Klee and Pollock.

The circle, usually located in a central location on a square canvas, began to emerge as an important element in his work as a way to counter the traditional methods of composition. After experimenting briefly with elliptical shapes, Noland replaced the circle with chevron as its dominant theme, emphasizing the axial symmetry in paintings like Dusk.

In the early 1970s introduced a grid structure in his paintings, creating works that recall Mondrian, but with an array of colored lines. Since the end of 1970s and early 1980s, he began working with irregularly shaped canvases covered with geometric areas of sober color, although later he returned to regular canvas and to  some of his early chevron drawings.
