FRANK STELLA "RIVER OF PONDS" 1971

Caviar20 specializes in early Frank Stella prints, with an emphasis on his works from the 1960's and 70's. 

One of Stella's most beloved and iconic bodies of work relate to forms created by protractors, (specifically the paintings from the Protractor Series completed between 1967 and 1971). He created a group of  6 prints, collectively referred to as the Newfoundland Series. Each of the prints were named after locations on the west coast of Newfoundland.

In this work, "River of Ponds II" the colors are highly saturated and somewhat discordant. The intensity of the colors dominates the intriguing interlocking / overlapping forms. Stella also used fluorescent inks to intensify the colors. Perhaps one of the biggest distinctions between the paintings and the prints, are the white outlines between the shapes that are further exaggerated by a thin red border.  

Today, Stellas works with protractor-like compositions are the most sought-after on the secondary market.
