Noland, Kenneth

born April 10, 1924, Asheville, N.C., U.S.

U.S. painter.

Noland attended Black Mountain College in North Carolina and studied under the French sculptor Ossip Zadkine in Paris (1948–49). He and Morris Louis, influenced by the work of Helen Frankenthaler, worked together on the technique of staining with thinned paints. This method presented pure, saturated colour as an integral part of the canvas. He employed his colours in concentric rings and parallels that were shaped and proportioned in relation to the shape of the canvas. Noland taught at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (1950–52) and at Catholic University (1951–60), both in Washington, D.C., and at Bennington College (1968) in Vermont.

▪ American artist
born April 10, 1924, Asheville, N.C., U.S.

      American painter of the Abstract Expressionist school. He was one of the first to use the technique of staining the canvas with thinned paints and of deploying his colours in concentric rings and parallels, shaped and proportioned in relation to the shape of the canvas.

      Noland attended Black Mountain College in North Carolina and studied under the French sculptor Ossip Zadkine in Paris (1948–49). He presented his first one-man show there in 1949. He and Morris Louis, influenced by the work of Helen Frankenthaler, worked together on the technique of staining with thinned paints. This method presented pure, saturated colour as an integral part of the canvas. Noland arrived at his characteristic style in the late 1950s.

      Noland taught at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (1950–52) and at Catholic University (1951–60), both in Washington, D.C., and at Bennington (Vt.) College in 1968. His work has been exhibited internationally, and permanent collections of his paintings are housed at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the Tate Gallery of London, and the Zürich Kunsthaus.
