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.

Frank Stella: A Retrospective is the first comprehensive US exhibition of the artist’s work since 1970. In 1959, at the age of 23, Stella (b. 1936) burst onto the New York art scene as an already mature artist with his now-legendary series of black paintings, which served as a pictorial manifesto of the artist’s assertion that a painting was “a flat surface with paint on it—nothing more.”

Danny Lyon may appear to be a photojournalist, but he is not. While photojournalists strive to be objective, Lyon has always become immersed in the lives of his subjects, from 60s civil rights protestors, to motorcycle gang members and Texas prison inmates. He lives their lifestyles, becoming one of them. The exhibition is organized by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco in collaboration with the Whitney Museum in New York and the full support of the artist.

Frank Stella burst onto the art scene in 1959 at age 23, with his now-legendary series of black paintings. Over the years his abstract compositions have become 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. Don’t miss this opportunity to delve into the work of one of the most important living American artists.
