Color Field painter, professor, and printmaker William T. Williams's interest in color began when he was a student during the 1960s. According to Driskell, "Color was greatly impressed upon his [Williams's] mind as the mechanism through which the structure of a painting is built." Williams took those lessons to heart and during the 1960s and 1970s searched for new ways of structuring color to create spatial volume.

Since the 1970s, Williams's work has generally been concerned with large-scale abstract imagery in combination with geometric and organic forms. In his 1973 untitled mixed-media- on-paper work, Williams sporadically overlays color in washes, splashes, and crayon pastels on a flat background of violet.   T. F.
