Brice Marden is an American artist, generally described as Minimalist, although his work defies specific categorization.

Marden's paintings are often born from a particular experience, or in reaction to having spent time in a specific place. In 1971, he and his wife, Helen Harrington, visited the Greek island of Hydra, to which they have returned every year since, and the light and landscape have greatly influenced his work.

In 1983, Marden and family traveled to Thailand, Sri Lanka, and India; the artist became fascinated by the art, landscape, and culture of Asia. Marden has subsequently incorporated numerous elements of these traditions into his work, making them one key to his process.  A visit in 1984 to the exhibition Masters of Japanese Calligraphy, 8th-19th Century, encouraged Marden to master the form, a predominant influence in his recent work.

In 2000, Marden embarked on the most ambitious paintings of his career: The Propitious Garden of Plane Image, the longest two of which measure 24 feet. Marden is considered to rank among the most important American painters of contemporary period.
