Ellsworth Kelly, Fenêtres Windows, 2019
Through two essays penned by Jean-Pierre Criqui and Yve-Alain Bois respectively, Ellsworth Kelly: Windows offers a new study of this cardinal moment in the artist’s career by anchoring itself in the influence of the window as a dominant motif in Kelly’s oeuvre.

After constructing « Window » with two canvases and a wood frame, I realized that from then on painting as I had know it was finished for me. […] It was a new freedom: there was no longer the need to compose. The subject was there already made, and I could take from everything.»
