Ellsworth Kelly is one of the leading exponents of abstract art after the second war. His works mainly paintings and sculptures reject any categorization constantly searching for simplicity. Its biggest innovation is the introduction of the use of canvases contouring instead of the common rectangular or circular. The monochromatic painting and the production series are key features accompanying him for a lifetime.

One technique that is pretty dear to Kelly is the automatic painting that derived from surrealism. Thanks to this method in 1950 come to life his first abstract works. He reclined the canvas on the floor and let fall on it fragments of old drawings that later glued on in the exact position in which they relied. For the choice of colors, totally random, used to rely on the extraction from a hat of paper on which he wrote the names that would have caused the entire formal structure of his work.

The last part of the artistic production of Kelly has as its background the city of New York and is affected by the proximity of artists as Robert Indiana, Agnes Martin and James Rosenquist. From 1968 begins to produce works formed by more canvases that paints each of a different color and then approach them at a later time. This technique will become the distinctive feature for excellence of its production.

To celebrate the ninetieth birthday of the artist, the MoMA of New York exposes, from 23 May to 8 September, the first series of paintings made ??by Kelly after the departure from New York to get to Spancertown in 1970. The series of paintings shows a particular focus on the canvases sizes and colors used that are always balanced, but conflicting with each other.
