EXCERPT:

Color Field Painting is a style of American abstract painting which features big expanses of unmodulated color. This color saturates most or all of the canvas. The artists’ chief concern is pushing the expressive power of color to the nth degree. When the viewer gets close to the canvas, it should envelop that viewer as an immersive experience in color.

Color Field Painting did make a major innovation to painting. It eliminated form or mass needing to stand out against a background. Instead, it is all one, an immense field, which seems to spread out beyond the edges of the canvas. Originally, only three American painters belonged to Color Field Painting: Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman and Clyfford Still.

It was Barnett Newman’s Ideographic Picture exhibit for the Betty Parsons Gallery which was the beginning of the splintering among the abstract painters. Newman gathered together Mark Rothko, Clyfford Still, and Hans Hofmann for it.

Helen Frankenthaler, Morris Louis, and Paul Jenkins were all abstract painters who were included in this later abstract group. Morris Louis made veils of paint pouring down the canvas. Paul Jenkins manipulated flowing paint into “phenomena.” Helen Frankenthaler “stained” paint into her canvas, often into blooming shapes.
