Color Field painter, Jules Olitski was a GI Bill student in Paris, where he had his first solo exhibition in 1951.  Later in New York, with his GI compatriot Ellsworth Kelly, "he explored the autonomy of materials in terms of a completely flat definition of shape and color."  He then investigated the staining techniques established by Helen Frankenthaler, Kenneth Noland, and Morris Louis, and finally in the 1960s arrived at the method of spray painting which has become his domai (showing 500 of 4319 characters).
