Ellsworth Kelly Fragments offers a portrait of the influential American minimalist, tracking him in Paris during his formative years and then through many significant moments in his later career. “In my paintings, I’m not inventing; my ideas come from constantly investigating how things look” — Ellsworth Kelly. (Edgar B. Howard, 2007, 65 minutes) Presented in association with the reopening of the National Gallery of Art East Building exhibition spaces.
