FRANK STELLA "CIPANGO" LITHOGRAPH, 1972

Caviar20 is proud to be offering this exceptional paradigm of Frank Stella's work.

Is there any work from Stella's career that is more iconic and coveted than his colorful concentric squares?

This work was from the first series of multicolored square prints as well as being the first group of prints created with Petersburg Press. They relate to paintings from 1962 and 1963. 

Many of Stella's works have historical/geographical names that can be interpreted as highly poetic..or totally arbitrary. "Cipango" is a name for Japan used by Christopher Columbus, a destination that he had thought he had discovered when arriving in the Caribbean. 

Stella began working in printmaking in the mid-sixties and it would continue to be an important part of his practice throughout his career. 

Stella's work, regardless of media, references many of the key developments or movements in post-war American painting; geometric abstraction, color field painting and Minimalism.

"Cipango" perfectly demonstrates Frank Stella's enduring appeal - the hypnotic and alluring arrangement of precise contrasting colors.
