Frank Stella Prints: A Retrospective
For over fifty years, Frank Stella has created a significant body of abstract art comprised of paintings, reliefs, sculptures, drawings, and prints. Frank Stella Prints: A Retrospective details the artist’s remarkable career as a printmaker. It presents prints that make apparent how his highly experimental endeavors have redefined the traditional print. The exhibition also offers a clear view of Stella’s stylistic evolution—a series of reinventions from the minimalist geometric abstraction of the early years to the baroque exuberance of the later gestural work.
Frank Stella Prints: A Retrospective is the artist’s first major print retrospective since 1982 and is the occasion for the publication of a revised and expanded catalogue raisonné, Richard H. Axsom, Frank Stella Prints: A Catalogue Raisonné (NY: Hudson Hills Press, 2016).
The prints are selected from the extensive collection of the Jordan Schnitzer Foundation, Portland, OR. Schnitzer says, Stella “bridges Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism, and Pop. What I admire about him is that he’s kept pushing himself into new mediums and new themes.”
