Lot description
UNIQUE VARIANT.

Stella 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 sixties 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 is one of the most important contemporary printmakers and his art reveals constant growth and change.
