Post-war abstract painter Kenneth Noland (b. Asheville, 1924) died today at his home in Port Clyde, Maine. Championed by powerful critic Clement Greenberg, Noland’s rhythmic colorful stripe, cropped chevron and ring painting are associated with the Color Field school of painting, historically significant in the 1960s. He was the subject of a 1977 retrospective at the Guggenheim. Among Noland;s survivors are his widow, Architectural Digest editor Paige Rense, and his dauther, noted sculptor Cady Noland.
