    About The Work

    Caviar20 is excited to be offering this paradigm of Frank Stella's work; an example from his legendary "Benjamin Moore" series. 

    Stella is heralded as the visionary artist that propelled the transition from Abstract Expressionism to Minimalism. He was one of the first artists to dismiss the idea of using paint in an expressive form in the creation of abstract art. Furthermore, there was no allusion to the material world or an emotional state. “What you see is what you see” stated Stella in 1964.  

    "Hampton Roads" is one of Stella’s most minimal compositions. It comes from the 1961 “Benjamin Moore” series of paintings, named after the brand of household paints that Stella favored for their intense colors and flat, matte surfaces. Furthermore both Stella's paintings and prints of the 1960's and early 1970's reinforced the strength of minimalism as the new / dominant aesthetic of the New York avant-garde. 

    Stella was an active printmaker and experimented with techniques to achieve a specific aesthetic. In the Benjamin Moore print the saturated palette, measured proportions, and vibrant presence make this lithograph classically timeless and an icon of Stella's contribution to minimalism. 

    Stella’s work is in the collections of numerous important museums around the world, including the MoMA, the MET, the Menil Collection in Houston, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, in Washington, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. He was awarded the National Medal of Arts by President Obama in 2009.
