NEW YORK, NY.- Pace presents Recent Paintings by Robert Ryman in New York from September 12 through October 26, 2013 at 508 West 25th Street.

For over six decades Robert Ryman (b. 1930, Nashville, Tennessee) has continuously and methodically experimented with the different possibilities that can happen within a painting through material, brushstroke, support and scale, always with rigorous attention to their installation. Recent Paintings includes nine oil on stretched cotton canvas works from 2010 and 2011, and also features a ten panel painting, No Title Required 3 (2010). This large-scale piece is made with enamel and acrylic on eight birch plywood panels and two board panels which each varying in size between 43 x 43" and 47-7/8 x 47-7/8".

Seven years ago Ryman created the first No Title Required which the gallery exhibited in 2007. At the time, the artist remarked that his approach to painting is, "to figure out how it works, the different possibilities that can's just my sensibility. I like to know how it works and I like to know how things go together. It's a visual experience…I have to see how it's developing, what can come from it."

The No Title Required series is Ryman's most monumental multiple panel work to date. In addition to No Title Required 3, nine square paintings will be on view in the exhibition ranging in size from 18 x 18" to 26 x 26". Each painting is 2-1/2" in depth.

Recent Paintings is Robert Ryman's eleventh exhibition with the Pace Gallery.

Robert Ryman attended the Tennessee Polytechnic Institute and the George Peabody College for Teachers in Nashville, TN. After enlisting in the United States Army (1950-52), he moved to New York City to play Jazz. In 1953 he took a temporary job as a guard at The Museum of Modern Art. Soon after, he decided to devote his career to painting. Since Ryman’s first solo exhibition in 1967, his work has been the subject of more than 100 solo exhibitions in 12 countries.

Major retrospectives of Ryman’s work have been organized by the Tate Gallery, London, and The Museum of Modern Art, New York (1993-94) which traveled to the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and by Haus der Kunst, Munich, which traveled to the Kunstmuseum Bonn (2000-01), The Kawamura Memorial Museum of Art (2004), and the Dallas Museum of Art (2005-06).

The artist was also the subject of recent significant exhibitions at Dia: Beacon in New York (2010), the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia (2007), and The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. (2010).

Ryman is a four-time exhibitor at the Venice Biennale: 1976, 1978, 1980, and more recently, the 2007 exhibition Think with the Senses, Feel with the Mind: Art in the Present Tense. His work has also been included in Documenta, Kassel, Germany (1972, 1977, 1982), the Whitney Museum of American Art Biennial, New York (1977, 1987, 1995) and Carnegie International, Pittsburgh (1988).

In 2005 Ryman was named the Japan Art Association Praemium Imperiale laureate. The same year, he received the Roswitha Haftmann Foundation Prize, Zurich, and accepted an Honorary Doctor of Fine Arts from Montserrat College of Art in Massachusetts. Ryman was elected Vice President of Art for The American Academy of Arts and Letters, New York in 2003, and served as a member of the Art Commission for the City of New York in 1982. Ryman’s accolades also include the Skowhegan Medal from Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Maine (1985) and a John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship (1973).

Ryman’s work can be found in more than 40 public collections throughout the United States and abroad, including: Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; Israel Museum, Jerusalem; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebaek, Denmark; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Musée national d’art moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia Museum of Art; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Solomon R.
