    About The Work

    Frank Stella created the "Eccentric Polygons" series in 1974.

    It is one of his last body of prints before he transitions to the exuberant, Baroque-busy, elaborate style that defined his aesthetic to this day.

    Not surprisingly, these canvases featured prominently in a recent retrospective at the Whitney Museum in New York City.

    The "Polygon" paintings were created during 1965-1967, each form was created in four different color combinations. Their curious names, this example is called "Sunapee", come from small towns and locations in the White Mountains of New Hampshire where Stella and his father would go fishing during his youth.

    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. Stella would intentionally use cheap tape on the paintings when sectioning the works so color would bleed between the forms.
