Happy Birthday Kenneth Noland!! I am posting this early, as we are still in Hawaii, and today is my daughter's birthday as well! Born on April 10, 1924, Noland was an American abstract painter. His work in known as "color field" and is quite similar to Josef Albers, whom we looked at earlier, in fact he studied under Albers at the Bauhaus. He worked with targets, shaped like circles, chevrons or triangles. He also incorporated the edges of his canvases in the picture, and pioneered the shaped canvas.
