Ellsworth Kelly is best known for the clean, crisp lines of his abstract paintings, minimalist sculptures and shaped canvases. So “Ellsworth Kelly: Colored Paper Images,” an exhibition of 23 prints opening Sunday at the National Gallery of Art’s East Building, may come as a pleasant surprise to some who find his work cold. The molded, handmade paper images feature soft edges, rich texture and pools of bleeding color.
