Ellsworth Kelly's work spanned seven decades, and he is now considered one of America’s greatest 20th-century abstract artists. He began as a camouflage artist in WW2 before starting formal art training in the 1950s.
Kelly was not bound by one artistic style and is often credited for influencing Minimalism, Hard-edge painting, Color Field, and Pop art. His sculptures and paintings are now displayed at modern art museums in both Europe and the United States. He died in 2015 at the age of 92.
