  8. 8. Read students the dimensions of this painting. Ask them to measure it out using string. Ask students to close their eyes and imagine that they were standing in front of this vast red field broken by five thin vertical strips. Ask students how the size of a painting can affect their viewing experience. This painting is so large that when the viewer stands close she is engulfed in the environment it creates. In fact, at Newman's first solo exhibition in 1950, a note from the artist advised, "There is a tendency to look at large pictures from a distance. The large pictures in this exhibition are intended to be seen from a short distance."
