$7,500 towards the acquisition of Untitled, an early 1950s drawing by the painter for the museum’s permanent collection. Stout created a small but highly influential body of meticulously executed abstract work that sometimes took years to complete. Through close attention to border and edge, the shapes depicted in his work reveal the interchangeable nature of positive and negative space.
