ArtGrams: Appreciating Morris Louis

by Experiment Station
This month’s ArtGrams features Morris Louis’s large-scale painting Seal (1959). Louis, founding member of the Washington Color School, spent years working in Washington, DC. He drew inspiration from artists in The Phillips Collection including Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and more.
