Each lithograph features a pattern of rectilinear stripes of uniform width printed in metallic black ink on buff-tinted paper.
Frank Stella was born in Malden, Massachusetts, on May 12, 1936. He attended the Phillips Academy in Andover (1950-1954), where he studied painting with Patrick Morgan. Stella graduated from Princeton University with a bachelor of arts degree in history in 1958.
Frank Stella (b. 1936, Malden, Massachusetts) is an American painter, printmaker and sculptor whose work in minimalism and post-painterly abstraction has had a profound influence on visual art since the 1960s.
