WHERE

Most contemporary acquisitions reflect fashion and curatorial bias. Museums acquire what's "hot" and leave what's not to collectors. The best of what's not gravitates to museums later in the form of loans and expensive acquisitions.

Because Noland's art was fashionable in the '60s, most of his work in museum collections is from that era: "circles", "chevrons", and the occasional "stripe." Work from the '70s and '80s is represented less well.

Recent Nolands can be seen at his dealers, in private and corporate collections, and in the occasional museum exhibition.
