Born in New York, Kelly was a prominent American artist in the post-war art scene, working in multiple mediums. He was most influential in his development of Color Field painting and the Minimalism art movement. After serving in “the Ghost Army” camouflage unit during WWII, he studied at School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and École des Beaux-Arts, Paris. Returning to the United States during the mid-1950s, Kelly rose to fame and was featured in MoMA’s important exhibition Sixteen Americans. Ellsworth Kelly’s works are featured in many museum collections including the Tate Gallery in London, MOMA in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., The Broad in Los Angeles, CA, and many others.
