    About The Work

    The title of this series of Frank Stella lithographs, "Les Indes Gallantes" references a French opera-ballet composed in the 17th century. The five acts of the ballet are transposed into the five lithographs within this series. 

    Like many of Stella's creations, the connection between the artwork and the title is ambiguous or even arbitrary.

    The title can often be simply a topic or character that was relevant to the artist at the time of creating the work; but that doesn't necessarily have a link to the artwork itself.

    "Les Indes Gallantes" revisits the compositions of his paintings of "Mitered Mazes" and "Concentric Squares" done between 1962 and 1963. 

    Like many of Stella's lithographs, the artist used a lithographic crayon to create the illusion that the works have been hand-sketched.
