Info

When the American painter, sculptor, and printmaker Ellsworth Kelly (1923-2015) first encountered Shaker objects in 1970, he was already an established artist with a recognizable body of work--work that drew the viewer's eye to shapes, colors, surfaces, lines and curves, without the distraction of unnecessary details. Kelly found the furniture to be "simple and well-structured and in the same categories that I like to make paintings," inspiring him to make his first of many Shaker purchases. Kelly and his partner, photographer Jack Shear, lived with and used these objects in their Columbia County, NY, home until 2015 when they were donated to the Shaker Museum | Mount Lebanon upon Kelly's death. This July, the New Britain Museum of American Art presents an exhibition of this unique Ellsworth Kelly and Jack Shear Shaker Collection with a selection of iconic Kelly prints from the 1960s through the 1980s.
