FRANK STELLA "MOULTONVILLE" SCREENPRINT, 1974

Sold

The canvas. The print. The poster.

"Moultonville" is without question one of the quintessential works from Frank Stella's series "Eccentric Polygons".

During Stella's sensational retrospective at the Whitney, the museum not only displayed the painting that "Moultonville" is based on, but used its image in a wide variety of advertisements across the city.  

In this work, like its siblings from the "Eccentric Polygons", we see funky shaped brightly colored shapes push, wedge, support or jostle against other forms 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.
