John Plumb was an English abstract painter who emerged in Britain after World War II. In the mid-1960s Plumb produced paintings with large fields of a single color; with narrow strips on the edge of different colors intended to optically enhance the emotional impact of the central, major, and usually intense hue. He taught at Bennington College in Vermont in 1968 and 1969. When he died, Plumb was 81 years old.
