Lot description
Mr. Kelly turned 90 in April this year, and is still actively making work. This striking early print "Black Curve" shows the artist's interest in simple, sculptural forms.

Museums are celebrating Mr. Kelly’s birthday: the National Gallery of Art in Washington has an exhibition of his prints on view through Dec. 1; the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia has put together five sculptures in a show that opens on Thursday; the Phillips Collection in Washington will exhibit his panel paintings starting on June 22; and on May 25 the Museum of Modern Art will open a show of the “Chatham Series.” The 14 paintings in that series are the first Mr. Kelly made after leaving New York for Spencertown in 1970. They have not been shown together for more than 40 years. Special installations at the Pompidou Center in Paris, the Tate Modern in London, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Philadelphia Museum of Art will open soon.
