Chroma: The Exploration of Color Field Painting features works by artists known broadly as Color Field Painters, who embraced the boldness of pure, saturated hues and regularly employed basic geometric shapes in their compositions. Many contributed to a revived interest in lithography in the mid-20th century, including Ellsworth Kelly, Frank Stella, and more.
