Albert Stadler was a leading figure in the art movement of color abstraction in the mid-1960's. His work drew inspiration from both the conceptual and spiritual and he often combined elements from Color Field and Minimalist art. Stadler's first solo exhibition was held at Bennington College, Vermont in 1962. Not long after in 1964 his work was exhibited among other likeminded artists in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's show Post-Painterly Abstraction. In the following years Stadler participated in notable showcases such as the Whitney Museum of American Art Annual, Corcoran Gallery, Washington Biennial, and Color and Field at the Albright-Knox Gallery, New York. His work can now be found in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum, the American Embassy, Berlin, Germany, the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, the Kresge Art Center, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., among others.MEASURMENTS: Height: 63 7/8 in. x Width: 70 7/8 in.
