Draftline

Kenneth Noland (1924)
Draftline , 1969

Acrylic on canvas, 6.7 x 97.2 in.
Sammlung DaimlerChrysler


Draftline, which belongs to Noland's “Stripes” series (1967-70), responds to our reading of the world from left to right in sequential “lines.” The continuous bands represent a potentially infinite space that dominates the simple nature of the picture as a radically reduced body of color. Noland introduces the “shaped canvas” into his work in about 1960, through which he achieves a complete conformity between figure and ground, pictorial content and form with the goal of better expressing color relationships.
