Carl Alexander is the last unknown Washington Color School painter. Zenith is proud and enthusiastic to present his first one man show.

The 1953 meeting of artists Morris Louis (1912-1962) and Kenneth Noland (1924-2010) set off a new movement known as the Washington Color School. They expanded on Abstract Expressionism with a heavy focus on the role of color and its application. Clement Greenberg promoted it in his landmark exhibit Post-Painterly Abstraction in 1964. The Washington Color School reached international fame.
