See work by one of America’s greatest 20th century abstract artists Tate Liverpool presents newly bequeathed works by the pioneering American artist Ellsworth Kelly (1923–2015) alongside 20 paintings, prints and reliefs from the Tate collection.

Kelly is known as one of America’s greatest 20th century abstract artists and was the subject of a major retrospective at Tate Modern in 1996, a display at Tate St Ives in 2006 and the new Tate Modern currently has a dedicated room of the artist’s work. This focussed display spans more than six decades of the artist’s career and commemorates the artist’s death in December 2015 at the age of ninety-two. It demonstrates his transformative impact on post-war abstraction through his use of colour, chance processes and shaped canvases.
