Astonishingly, Louis painted his large canvases in his modest 12 x 14-foot dining room.


Louis is associated with the Washington Color School, a group of painters based in Washington, DC, during the 1960s and '70s. These artists tended to create large colorful compositions with repeated shapes, often using diluted paint.
