Kenneth Noland has died. Reports come in from Roberta Smith and William Grimes at the NYT (who also put together a slide show), Mike Boehm at the LA Times, and Carol Mostsinger at the Asheville Citizen-Times, which records reminiscences by local artists of the North Carolina native.
From the Grimes article:
Mr. Noland continued to pursue his high modernist program, undeterred and confident about the future of abstract art. "It's a fertile field that we barely have explored, and young artists will return to it," he said at a symposium in 1994. "I'm certain."
