Born on 31st May 1923, Ellsworth Kelly was an American painter, sculptor, and printmaker known for his hard-edge, Color Field paintings and minimalism. He focussed on lines, colours and forms and was inspired by John McLaughlin and Kenneth Noland. His abstract paintings were based on real elements which were reduced to their essential forms.
