NY Art Commentary - World Artists
Barnett Newman created deceptively simple works often characterized by large, even expanses of a single color punctuated by one or more vertical lines, which he called "zips".
One of the several works based on ancient Greek mythology, Achilles (1952) does not feature a zip but rather a swath of red paint that moves down the canvas to end in a ragged edge.
1905 - 1970
