Since the beginning of his career in the mid-‘60s, Robert Mangold (b. 1937, North Tonawanda, NY) has combined the classic elements of composition—shape, line, and color—to create abstract works of architectural scale, drawing by hand thick and thin graphite lines on subtly modulated planes of color. Following his first solo exhibition in 1964, Mangold’s work has been the subject of numerous single-person exhibitions and retrospectives at institutions including the Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam; the Akron Art Museum; the Hallen für neue Kunst, Schaffhausen, Switzerland; the Allen Memorial Art Museum, Oberlin College; the Hallen für neue Kunst; the Museum Wiesbaden; the Parasol Unit Foundation for Contemporary Art, London; and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo. Mangold joined the Gallery in 1991.
