Frank Stella (American b.1936)

Black Stack, lithograph, 1970, signed, numbered 43/56.

Frank Stella was born in Maiden, Massachusetts in 1936. He studied at Phillips Academy, Andover, and then at Princeton University. One year after his graduation in 1968, he was included in an exhibition, Sixteen Americans, at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The following year, his shaped canvases were the basis of his first one-man show at the Leo Castelli Gallery. Frank Stella's work is concerned with regulation of structure and colour. His early works exhibit the precision and rationality that characterized minimalism.

Frank Stella was also a prolific printmaker. This work is one of his early prints which is composed of flat monochromatic geometric shapes; in this phase he uses the physicality of flat surface rather than illusionistic space. His work has been widely exhibited in USA and British galleries and his works are included in musuem collections worldwide.
