FRANK STELLA "FORTIN DE LAS FLORES" SCREENPRINT, 1967
One interesting characteristic of many of Frank Stella's early prints is their trompe d'oeil effect.
This is one of Stella's earliest prints and done on English vellum graph paper. Upon first glance many people assume that it is actually a watercolor rather than a multiple.
1967 marks the year that Stella really begins to explore the possibilities of printmaking.
Stella was on the forefront of the revival of American printmaking and inspired/test-drove new innovations at studios like Gemini and Petersburg Press.
This work was a part of the "Ten from Leo Castelli" portfolio which included prints by Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Donald Judd and Robert Rauschenberg to mention a few.
Stella's work references many of the key developments or movements in post-war American painting; geometric abstraction, color field painting and Minimalism.
This is a fantastic example of his work and ideal for a new collector or a seasoned buyer.
