Ellsworth Kelly's Drawings of Plants, Flowers, Leaves-Spanning 60 Years-on View Beginning June 5 at Metropolitan MuseumStory | May 16, 2012 | 9:58 AMOne of the foremost artists of our day, Ellsworth Kelly may be best known for his rigorous abstract painting. However, Kelly has made figurative drawings throughout his career, and has created an extraordinary body of work that now spans six decades. Ellsworth Kelly Plant Drawings—at The Metropolitan Museum of Art from June 5 through September 3, 2012—will be the first major museum exhibition dedicated exclusively to the artist’s drawings of plants, flowers, and leaves. The selection of approximately 75 drawings begins in 1948 during Kelly’s early sojourn in Paris and continues throughout his travels to his most recent work made in upstate New York. The exhibition will include loans from major public and private collections.
