Frank Stella’s Prints highlights the American artist’s experimental printmaking over a twenty-five-year period starting in 1967, the year he began working in the medium. Examples are drawn from the Anderson Collection of Graphic Arts held in the Fine Arts Museums’ Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts and loans from Harry W. and Mary Margaret Anderson. Though he came to printmaking somewhat reluctantly, Frank Stella (b. 1936) eventually discovered its potential and has continued with the form.
