FRANK STELLA "MOULTONVILLE" SCREENPRINT, 1974
The canvas. The print. The poster.
"Moultonville" is without question one of the quintessential works from Frank Stella's series "Eccentric Polygons".
If you've been in New York, and seen the advertisements for the exhibition or seen it at the Whitney, then you are familiar with this work.
In this work, arguably better than any of its siblings, we see the odd shaped brightly colored shapes push, wedge, support or jostle against other shapes for pure visual pleasure.
The "Polygon" paintings were created during 1965-1967. Each form was created in four different color combinations. Their curious names, such as "Moultonville", come from small towns and locations in the White Mountains of New Hampshire where Stella and his father would go fishing during his youth.
We are excited to be offering this most famous example from the "Eccentric Polygon" series.
