Ellsworth Kelly began making lithographs in Paris with Maeght Editions in 1964 and over the next few years created a seminal body of work. This exhibition focuses on the series of botanical images the artist made during this period. These works are both an homage to and bold departure from Matisse’s evocative line drawings.
