Gene Davis (1920-1985) was part of the Washington Color School, part of the larger color field movement in the 60s and 70s. He began painting colorful vertical stripes in the 50s and used the repeat of particular colors to create a sense of rhythm and movement. Many of his works are large scale (he created what was at the time the largest painting in the world) and I love how they seem to dance across the eye. See more here.
