This 1984 work on paper by Robert Mangold displays the fine, curving graphite line and asymmetrical blocks of color which distinguish the artist's mature style.

Robert Mangold (American, b. 1937) is a contemporary Minimalist artist. He graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1958, where he was highly influenced by the work of Abstract Expressionist painters such as Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock. He completed his MFA at the Yale University School of Art and Architecture in 1962. By 1964, Mangold had begun developing the distinctive Minimalist style for which he is best known, often applying fine, sinuous lines onto fields of monochromatic color and employing curvilinear or asymmetrical supports. Mangold has received fellowships from the National Endowment of the Arts (1967) and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation (1969). His work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Netherlands; and Musée d’Orsay, Paris, France. He has also exhibited at Documenta (1972, 1977, 1982); the Whitney Biennial (1979, 1983, 1985); and the Venice Biennale (1993). He lives and works in Washingtonville, New York.
