Paul Reed, H II, Gilport series, 1972

An original member of the famed Washington Color School movement, Paul Reed became known for moving beyond the traditional four-sided canvas painting to geometrically shaped paintings. Often working on raw canvas, he utilized brilliant color in his hard-edged abstract pieces. Thanks to the efforts of the Arts Program at University of Maryland University College and Reed's daughter, Jean Roberts, the UMUC collection now includes about 200 of Reed's works, which span more than 60 years.
