Guggenheim Museum, New York / ACCESSION: 68.1874 / COPYRIGHT: © Jo Baer / ARTWORK TYPE: Painting / MOVEMENT: Minimalism / Excerpt Guggenheim website by Diana Kamin: Horizontals Flanking, Large, Green Line (1966) is one of a group of paired canvases with similar visual elements that differ in color and orientation. Here, the title indicates two panels with a landscape orientation (thus “Horizontals”), which are hung next to one another (hence “Flanking”). The work features an expansive white field bounded on the edges by a black line and a green line. Baer built up the white ground with oil and acrylic to achieve a flat, even surface, and created the bands around the edges with oil paint using tapes and rulers, finishing them with a small brush by hand.

Color: HTML 3.2 specifications identified sixteen color names for use in an HTML attribute. These have become "the sixteen named colors" that can be used by name to define color in HTML and now in Cascading Style Sheets. The table shows sixteen colors with swatches defined by the hexadecimal code and sorted by hue, saturation, and light. Each color's RGB hexadecimal code is shown as well as its RGB decimal code, RGB percent code, HSL (hue, saturation, light) code, and the CMYK code (for comparison--CMYK is not used in HTML or CSS).
