(born April 10, 1924, Asheville, N.C., U.S.—died Jan. 5, 2010, Port Clyde, Maine) U.S. painter. Noland attended Black Mountain College in North Carolina and studied under the French sculptor Ossip Zadkine in Paris (1948–49). He and Morris Louis, influenced by the work of Helen Frankenthaler, worked together on the technique of staining with thinned paints. This method presented pure, saturated colour as an integral part of the canvas. He employed his colours in concentric rings and parallels that were shaped and proportioned in relation to the shape of the canvas. Noland taught at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (1950–52) and at Catholic University (1951–60), both in Washington, D.C., and at Bennington College (1968) in Vermont.
