    About The Work

    We are pleased to be offering another dynamic example of Frank Stella's iconic "Eccentric Polygons"

    Created in 1974, it is one of his last series before he transitions to the exuberant, Baroque-busy style that defined his aesthetic to this day. 

    This series of prints were inspired by the "Polygon" paintings created during 1965-1967. Each form was created in four different color combinations. Aesthetically there is a subtle but significant difference between the canvases and the prints. Like many of Stella's multiples, there is a trompe d'ceil effect; the sections of color appear to have been sketched in with a crayon yet bound in with a sharp outline. The canvases, on the other hand, had dense flat colors.

    This example, with its emerald green structure and paprika diamond, is called "Effingham" after a small city halfway between Indianapolis and St. Louis.  All the "Eccentric Polygons" have curious names, but actually come from small towns and locations where Stella and his father would go fishing during his youth.
