Barnett Newman, Who's afraid of red, yellow and blue III, 1966-1967

In the series Who's Afraid of Red, Yellow, and Blue (I-IV) the American artist Barnett Newman (1905-1970) used large areas of saturated colors punctuated by narrow vertical bands of other colors that he called "zips". Newman is seen as one of the major figures in abstract expressionism and one of the foremost of the 'color field painters'.
