Morris Louis

Morris Louis was a prolific painter whose work provides a link between 
Abstract Expressionism and Color Field painting. His mature style is among the most recognizable of the Color Field 

painters and is characterized by layered rainbows of acrylic paint poured down huge blank canvases.Baltimore-bred artist Morris Louis, who lived in Washington in the 1950s.
