Ellsworth Kelly (May 1923 – December 2015) was an American painter, sculptor, and printmaker associated with hard-edge painting, Color Field painting and minimalism. His works demonstrate unassuming techniques emphasizing line, color and form, similar to the work of John McLaughlin and Kenneth Noland. Kelly often employed bright colors. He lived and worked in Spencertown, New York.
In 2006, Ellsworth Kelly collaborated on a panel that he painted in his signature style. The panel he designed is made of 400 squares and took over 700 hours to complete.
