Born in 1938 in Bronxville, New York, Brice Marden received his BFA from Boston University in 1961 and his MFA from Yale University’s School of Art and Architecture in 1963. Marden had his first solo exhibition in 1966 at the Bykert Gallery in New York, where he showed matte, monochromatic, oil-and-beeswax paintings inspired in part by the art of Jasper Johns. Marden’s work grew in complexity in the 1970s, often involving multiple panels, and his palette broadened. His 1984 visit to an exhibition of Japanese calligraphy triggered a dramatic shift in style that culminated in a masterful series of gestural paintings and drawings entitled Cold Mountain. From that time, through several further changes in vocabulary, Marden continued to explore linear networks as the basis for ambitious, allover abstractions. In 2006 he was the subject of a major retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
