Barnett Newman popped onto my radar via the Tate’s website when I was researching Rothko. He was suggested as one of the ‘Other works of art you may be interested in’. He was then suggested by Angela as someone to look at in a recent tutorial.
The works of his I have seen are very reminiscent of the printmaking works I had produced last summer.
I am going on another print course this month and may well use his work as a springboard for creating some striped prints inspired by him and (to some extent) the works of Richter.
Other works by Newman can be seen on the Tate’s website here.
