About the Work

A field of blue-green drops down from rounds of gold, sienna, lime and crimson in this elegant modernist canvas by Milly Ristvedt. Painted in 1971, the title may refer to the modernist concept of the picture plane and its quality of flatness. According to influential critic Clement Greenberg, flatness was a central feature of post-painterly abstraction and color field painting. Ristvedt, however, points outward and beyond the self-referencing canvas to the world outside including that of art history.
