  • Colour (Color)  Field artists: Follow the link below (thanks Lua) for good commentary on the meanings and religious background to Barnett Newman's work. He was a Jewish artist and so believed in the God of the Old Testamentn ("Oneness"- see Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: this is called the "Shama Israel" in the Jewish Faith.)

Yes I have looked and it is good. You get the coloured areas with the black frame in a woodcut and also the areas of white between colour areas.

That is a good point, the effect is that there is a colour plain and then there is a black "stensil" pattern over this.
