Frank Stella’s Estoril Five I, from Circuits, 1982 is from the artist's acclaimed series inspired by race tracks from around the world. This particular example takes the forms of the Estoril circuit, the auto-racing track in Portugal as Stella's subject matter. From an aerial perspective, Stella captures the fluidity and directional flow of the circuit, a mixture of angular and organic lines. Expressive drawing in warm hues of pink, red, and orange, are layered upon a background of blurry smudges of greens and yellow. A heightened sense of contrast encloses the work, which is bordered in black.
Created in 1982, this relief and woodcut on white TGL handmade, hand-colored paper is signed and dated by Frank Stella (Massachusetts, 1936 - ) in pencil in the lower right and numbered from the edition of 30 in pencil in the lower right; published by Tyler Graphics, Ltd., Bedford Village, NY.
