Blanc et Noir is a monochromatic painting from Richard Bernstein’s “Pilule” series that he created while living in Paris in the mid 1960s. At the time when Abstract Expressionism and color field painting were at their peak, this series was a stark contrast to those movements. Blanc et Noir typified Pop Art in its commodification and celebration of everyday items, in this case... pills. Richard debuted this series at the famed Iris Clert Gallery and later at the Paolo Barozzi Galleria in Venice Italy where famed collector Peggy Guggenheim was the guest of honor. Although Blanc et Noir is beautiful on its own, Trois Pilules makes a perfect companion.
