Frank Stella (b. 1936) is a contemporary American painter and printmaker known for his abstract and Minimalist works. He attended Phillips Academy in Andover, MA, and went on to study history at Princeton University. After he graduated in 1958, the artist moved to New York, NY. In 1959, his paintings were included in the exhibition “16 Americans” at the Museum of Modern Art, and, in 1960, he had his first New York solo show at the Leo Castelli Gallery. He married the art historian and critic Barbara Rose in 1961. Stella’s works have been featured in exhibitions at Haunch of Venison, London, England; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; Gagosian Gallery, New York, NY; and Kunstmuseum, Basel, Switzerland, among many others. In 1970, when Stella was only in his 30s, the Museum of Modern Art held a retrospective of the artist’s work. He has received many awards and honors, including First Prize at the International Biennial Exhibition of Paintings in Tokyo, Japan (1967), Ordre des Arts et des Lettres from the French Government (1989), and Gold Medal for Graphic Art Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York, NY (1998). He lives and works in New York, NY.
