Kenneth Noland - 20th c. and Contemporary Art Day Sale - Morning Session New York Tuesday, December 8, 2020 | Phillips
  •  "At one point in 1968 Noland appeared to be emptying the centers of his paintings: in canvases of this year like Warm Above, Via Flow (cat. no. 79) and Dawn-Dusk (cat. no. 87), white is either the middle of the field or the main feature of the composition. Intense and glowing color is confined to narrow clusters of stripes at the top and bottom of the painting." —Diane Waldman, 1977
