Mollie Salah examines the work of color painter Mary Pinchot Meyer who worked contemporaneously with, and in some cases alongside, artists such as Anne Truitt and Kenneth Noland. Meyer’s sole concern is color. Never garish, her balance of tone and hue creates even compositions where color dominates and appears to extend beyond the bounds of the canvas.
