The value of this work by Brice Marden is difficult to explain. In the 1980s he was influenced by an exhibit of Chinese calligraphy which then became an important aspect of his work. He could be called a minimalist. I love his use of color and his 'mark making' which is so painterly. Marden graduated from Yale in 1963 where he had been part of a group of up and coming young artists many of whom I have shown in this blog.
