Kenneth Noland (1924–2010) had his first retrospective exhibition at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 1977. Diane Waldman, who worked closely with Noland to organize the exhibition, wrote the catalogue essay in which she comprehensively describes Noland’s influences, teachers, and friends that have inspired his work. The exhibition catalogue provides a mid-career study on Noland’s body of work. It includes a detailed chronology, as well as color and black-and-white reproductions of works in the exhibition, and quotes from an unpublished interview with Noland from 1971.
