This is a signed Frank Stella offset lithograph created for an exhibition at the Whitney Museum of Modern Art from January 13 - March 13 in 1983. The exhibit celebrated Stella's works from 1967-1982.

Frank Stella
(American Minimalist Painter and Sculptor, Born in 1936)

Stella's work was included in several important exhibitions that defined 1960s art, among them the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum's The Shaped Canvas (1964-65) and Systemic Painting (1966). His art has been the subject of several retrospectives in the United States, Europe, and Japan. Among the many honors he has received was an invitation from Harvard University to give the Charles Eliot Norton lectures in 1983-84. Calling for a rejuvenation of abstraction by achieving the depth of baroque painting, these six talks were published by Harvard University Press in 1986. The artist continues to live and work in New York.

For his first major retrospective, organized by the University of Michigan Museum of Art, Frank Stella designed an exhibition poster. It incorporated an etching from the Swan Engraving Series that was begun in 1982. Known for his innovative and experimental handling of print media, Stella created the collaged metal plates for this series from etched scraps left over from the manufacture of a recent series of metal-relief paintings. Stella had the plates both inked and wiped for intaglio printing and inked for relief-printing, a highly unusual combination of traditional techniques. The poster, which reproduces Swan Engraving V in its actual dimensions, reflects the monumental scale for which Stella's paintings and more recent prints had become known. After opening in Ann Arbor in the fall of 1982, Stella's print retrospective traveled in an American tour, whose venues included the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
