Ad Reinhardt

Ad Reinhardt (1913 – 1967) was an American abstract painter and essayist. His works are characterized by a use of bold colors and simple geometric shapes that are paradoxically both minimalistic and complex. His most iconic works include paintings such as Abstract Painting (1961) and Abstract Painting (1963). He is also well-known for his Black Paintings series (1961 – 1967) which consists of 18 monochromatic paintings. Reinhardt's artistic practices form the basis for many prevailing theories of Minimalism and Abstraction today.
