Kenneth Noland says that he does not like to make comments about his pictures, beyond the obvious fact that his work is primarily concerned with colour and that he tends to move between strong, positive colour contrasts and paler, more atmospheric effects of colour. This work comes from a series with a large expanse of a single, hazy colour, offset by narrow horizontal stripes of contrasting or more positive colour mainly clustered together along the top and the bottom. Most of the pictures of this particular series were shown at Kasmin's or the Waddington Galleries (the joint catalogue lists and reproduces eight paintings), but there were also a few others which did not come to London.
