Barnett Newman, Onement I, 1948
Barnett Newman did his first known painting at the age of 40. Not the first painting that looks like a Newman (that came a few years later), but his first known painting of any style, any quality. Sylvester: “Given the resemblance of artists, not to mountaineers, with their finite ambition to scale particular peaks, but to jumpers and vaulters, with their infinite ambition to reach as far as they can … Newman was like those champion high jumpers who delay coming into a competition till the bar is nearing its ultimate level.”
