THOMAS

DOWNING

(1928 - 1985)

"(Tom) was one of the first persons that ... let me know that the Washington Color School painting wasn't about what was being written by Greenberg. ... Tom would interestingly tell you that it was only about seeing; and then later he would tell you that it was only about color; or that it was only about the music of color; or the way you could structure color. And then later he would say that it was like pop art."
