Lot description
Frank Stella (b. 1936) combines many processes—lithography, screenprinting, etching, engraving, aquatint, relief, woodcut—in a rare oblong or elliptical format. As much known for his printmaking as his painting, Stella pushes the limits of the medium by crafting the beautiful handmade, dyed papers into three-dimensional sculptures. Frank Stella participated in several exhibitions that defined the 1960's including the Guggenheim’s The Shaped Canvas (1964–65) and Systemic Painting (1966), and has had several major retrospectives in America, Europe, and Japan. Stella’s art was recognized for his innovations before he was twenty-five. In 1959, several of his paintings were included in Sixteen Americans at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (1959–60), and Alfred Barr acquired one of his works for the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection. Stella joined dealer Leo Castelli’s stable of artists in 1959. He began his extended engagement with printmaking in the mid-1960s, working first with master printer Kenneth Tyler at Gemini G.E.L and in 1973 he had a print studio installed in his New York house. He has maintained a longtime relationship with Kenneth Tyler at the legendary Tyler Graphics Studio. Frank Stella is considered one of the most important contemporary printmakers, and his art reveals constant growth and change.
