Richard H. Axsom, curator at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, offers an overview of Ellsworth Kelly's art as a whole and how, in regard to Less is More: Minimal Prints, they fit into the minimalist tendencies of the 1960s. Special attention is given to the Rivers project (2002–2005), a lithographic series of three monumental prints and eight state editions. Dr. Axsom has written that in its "conception, manufacture, and expressive richness, the Rivers marks an epic achievement in the history of the modern print." Free.
