Like Cézanne, Kelly observes nature. He simplifies and then flattens shapes until they become abstract.
Ellsworth Kelly, born in 1923 in Newburgh (New York), said: "When I was studying at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 1947, I painted a figure of a young man, taking my inspiration from Cézanne. I still look at Cézanne's works today."
