Washington, DC is well known as a center of color field abstraction, and we are proud to have several works by important DC color field artists in our collection. Washington Color School artists Gene Davis, Thomas Downing, and Paul Reed were among the first to experiment with this new form of abstraction in the 1960s. Beyond the Washington Color School, Sam Gilliam and Simmie Knox expanded color field painting to creative new mediums.
