Born in Baltimore with the name of Morris Bernstein, Morris Louis, working from Washington DC, became a major figure in the mid 20th-century contemporary art scene on the East Coast.  He was also a distinguished teacher.  Louis is known for his drip paintings, the pouring of thinned acrylic paint onto unprimed or partially primed canvases.  His later paintings had irregular stripes of bright colour, often overlapping and merging.  He deliberately disassociated himself (showing 500 of 9916 characters).
