Ellsworth Kelly Plant Drawings, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Kelly, who came to prominence as the cleanest, most ascetic of the New York abstract painters of the 1950s, is known for his Minimalist and Color-Field works, which skate right up to the edge of a kind of self-erasure in deference to the pure, flat properties of color and shape. But this career-spanning exhibition, which gets underway shortly after his 89th birthday, arranges something like Kelly’s b-sides: the much looser, figurative drawings he’s long made in communion with nature.
June 5-September 3
