Event description

Description

Between 1984 and 1999, the American artist Frank Stella executed four ambitious print series, each of which was named after a literary work that had a distinctive narrative structure: the Passover song Had Gadya, a compilation of Italian Folktales, the epic novel Moby Dick, and the illustrated encyclopedia Dictionary of Imaginary Places. Through these four bodies of work, Stella evolved printmaking projects of unprecedented scale and complexity that both transformed the artist’s visual language—as well as his working process in all media—and represent a technical and expressive milestone in printmaking. Featuring about forty prints from these four major series, Frank Stella Unbound: Literature and Printmaking is the first exhibition to focus exclusively on the vital role that world literature played in his powerful exploration of the print medium.

Frank Stella Unbound: Literature and Printmaking is organized by the Princeton University Art Museum
