ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the work of painter Barnett Newman. It informs that Newman's work had a similar role ethically for young painters as painter Nicolas Poussin's work had in the 17th century. It reflects that Newman's painting Untitled seems like a foresight of the striped art work that became famous in New York art galleries after 15 years. It is noted that Newman was a numinous artist, who while not being religious, believed in originality. It reports that Newman never believed in making agreeable pictures and his work was designed to captivate viewers in an illusion of color.
