FRANK STELLA "HONDURAS LOTTERY" LITHOGRAPH, 1972
Caviar20 is proud to be offering this exceptional paradigm of Frank Stella's work; One of our favorite artists of the 20th century.
Stella's work references many of the key developments or movements in post-war American painting; geometric abstraction, color field painting and Minimalism.
Stella was one of the first accomplished artists to dismiss the idea of using paint in an expressive form in the creation of abstract art. Furthermore there was no allusion to the material world or an emotional state. Stella's sharp paintings, were simply that - paintings.
In 1970 Stella began his most iconic and influential body of work the "Protractor Series" noted for their bands of contrasting colors appearing on irregular shaped canvases.
That same year the Museum of Modern Art, New York presented a retrospective of Stella's work making him the youngest artist at the time to receive such a distinction.
Stella began working in printmaking in the mid-sixties and it would continue to be an important part of his practice.
"Honduras Lottery" was created in 1972 and perfectly demonstrates Frank Stella's enduring appeal - the hypnotic and alluring arrangement of precise contrasting colors.
