No. 1, 1957 by Clyfford Still, American painter and figurehead of the movement is known for his thick impasto opposed to the flat, thin layers used by his piers, Rothko and Newman. Still worked objectively, meaning, he didn't choose a subject to paint, just chose colors and experimented with their relationships and different types of paint. He is considered one of the foremost Color Field painters.
