Frank Stella burst onto the art scene in 1959 at the age of 23, with his series of black paintings. Over the years, his abstract compositions became increasingly complex and dynamic, moving out from the walls into the third dimension, expanding the very definition of painting. The de Young is the only West Coast venue for this retrospective covering six decades of Stella’s work, including paintings, wall mounted reliefs, and sculptures.
