- This is the last week to see Frank Stella: A Retrospective at the de Young Museum. The show has been highly lauded by critics.
- The show at the de Young holds 50 works of art in a range of mediums from American artist, Frank Stella.
Frank Stella: A Retrospective will open at the de Young Museum in San Francisco on November 5, 2016 and will be on view until February 26, 2017. It will be an unprecedented look at Stella’s illustrious career.
The de Young already holds an impressive collection of Frank Stella’s work. Currently, works from renowned Stella series such as Newfoundland Series, Black Series, V Series , Sinjerli Variation I and IIa are owned by the museum.
For visitors who would like to experience Stella’s work prior to the retrospective, Lettre sur les aveugles II , 1974 is on view in Gallery 15 of the museum. This large-scale work is part of Stella’s Concentric Square series and is titled after an essay by French philosopher Denis Diderot. The essay of the same title describes advanced medical operations which allowed blind patients to regain their vision. The hypnotic quality of the work reflects his contemplation of vision and color. No doubt, the retrospective will open viewers’ understanding of this work, as well as Frank Stella’s prints.
