Drawn from Nature: The Plant Lithographs of Ellsworth Kelly


This is a beautiful portfolio of closely observed foliate forms. The images have a great sense of presence and assertively fill the page. Each is over-scaled, greater than life and positioned on large sheets of paper. Plant forms are centered and isolated in extreme close-ups.

“You must not copy nature. You must let nature instruct you and then let the eye and hand collaborate.” – Ellsworth Kelly
