Jules Olitski and Anthony Caro

The informative Hyperallergic blog posts this interesting analysis on Jules Olitski and Anthony Caro. They met while teaching at Bennington College and their dialogue includes this by Olitski:

‘Well, Tony, what I would like for my painting is, let’s say, just a cloud of color that remains there transfixed.’” The conversation prompted Olitski to experiment with a commercial paint sprayer instead of the rollers he had used for several years, a change that resulted in the lush, mysterious paintings now synonymous with his name. 

Olistski, and daughter Lauren, are featured in the book Abstract Painting: Concepts and Techniques.
