Through the now familiar curves, contrasts, and grids that became his preferred motifs, Ellsworth Kelly explored the effects of pure color and form throughout his prolific printmaking career. In Baie Rouge, Kelly plays with curves, ever so slightly curving the brushed black ink to create a slanted triangular form, showing his interest in sculptural forms and the quality of line. This timeless aesthetic sensibility has made him one of the most sought-after American artists for over forty years.
