Robert Mangold’s subtle abstract paintings—which are derived from ideas of geometry and asymmetry in shape and form—challenge the limits of the two-dimensional discipline with irregularly shaped canvases, cut-outs in the middle of canvases, subtly modulated planes of color, and architectural scales. Mangold is associated with the mid-century Minimalist movement, and he incorporates classical compositional elements into his non-objective works; they have variously taken inspiration from ancient Greek pottery and Renaissance frescoes. Mangold has exhibited in New York, London, Madrid, Paris, Los Angeles, and Zürich. His work has sold for seven figures at auction and belongs in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Guggenheim Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Kunstmuseum Basel, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Phillips Collection, the Stedelijk Museum, and the Tate.
