Robert Ryman: The Charter Series

January 14–March 13, 1988

Working exclusively in white, Robert Ryman emphasizes the relationships between painted surface, underlying compositional structure, and the wall plane itself. This New Work exhibition features Ryman’s The Charter Series, a project commissioned by noted Chicago collector Gerald S. Elliott that comprises five works made from large fiberglass and aluminum panels. Presented together in a single gallery, they create a complete, meditative environment.
