FRANK STELLA "CREEDE II" LITHOGRAPH, 1970
We are excited to be offering this amazing example from Frank Stella's iconic "Copper Series".
Originally sold as an album, it is quite rare to find individual examples from the series. It is also worth noting that Stella typically created editions of 100 - "Creede II" is from an edition of 70.
These prints revisit/reinterpret some of his most successful paintings; specifically the Copper Series paintings from 1960-61. These paintings were some of the most celebrated and widely exhibited works from Stella's early career.
Besides the ingenious metallic coloring, these works were impactful for their highly original, curiously shaped canvases.
In 1970, Stella created a portfolio of 7 works, named the mining towns in the mountains of Colorado that sourced silver and copper, active at the turn of the century. These lithographs were created using several screens of metallic copper paints and tinted varnishes.
Stella was an active printmaker and experimented with techniques to achieve a specific aesthetic. These works were first screenprinted before the lithographic inks and varnishes were applied - and as a result are far more than smaller reproductions of paintings.
What is also notable is that we also have the original "Print Document" from Gemini signed by legendary printmaker Kenneth Tyler and Frank Stella, which notes exactly when and how the work was created.
Additional images available on request.
