If one is interested in Frank Stella's association with Op Art, one doesn't need to look much further than his hypnotic and minimal "Aluminum Series" from 1970. 

The "Aluminum Series" prints were based upon paintings he created around a decade earlier. The titles were inspired by mostly literary allusions. 

In these works, Stella recalls several of his most marked and insurgent artistic elements; the shaped canvas, the absence of color, the use of household paints, mysterious geometry and highly ambiguous titles. 

In 1970 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. 

This example from "Aluminum Series" is a paradigm of his work. Alongside "Union Pacific" it is notable as the composition nearly takes up the entire width of the sheet. 

This work can be found in many prestigious museum collections including the Albright-Knox Art Gallery (Buffalo), the National Gallery (Washington D.C.) and the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis) to mention a few.
