About the artist

Frank Stella

Frank Stella (born 1936) is an iconic American postwar artist known for his revolutionary departure from Abstract Expressionism to the early beginnings of Minimalism. After studying history at Princeton University, Stella moved to New York City in 1958 and quickly burst onto the art scene when his seminal Black Paintings were included in a group exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. Having been saturated by Abstract Expressionism, he was inspired by the work of Jasper Johns and wanted to create art focused solely on its materiality rather than its meaning or symbolism. Stella quickly became a celebrated artist for his radical uses of shape, color, and composition in both painting and printmaking. In 1970, he became the youngest artist to receive a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art and continued his attempts to drain any external significance from his work; he has been famously quoted as saying “What you see is what you see,” a statement that has come to embody much of the Minimalist movement. Stella has continuously evolved his style, later incorporating a brighter and more vivid palette along with curves and loops when it came to the shapes in his work. Stella’s works are held in permanent collections around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the Kunstmuseum Basel, the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., and the Tate Modern in London, among others.
