|RIP Kenneth Noland.
"When he was good, he was excellent" - are obits really the place for critics to get in their final digs? (Roberta Smith on Noland)
"Perhaps to his detriment, Mr. Noland was ardently loyal to his formalist principles" (another unelaborated Smith stab)
preliminary obit (presumably full libeling of the deceased to follow)
(edited to be less partisan-seeming--I think it is possible to like Noland without subscribing to any "formalist principles"--in fact I doubt he had them)
his daughter is prob more imfamous
He was huge in the 60s but not so huge when Cady appeared.
