Works by Frank Stella covering an almost 60 year span will be on view at the Whitney Museum of American Art from Oct 30 - Feb 7, 2016.
"Frank Stella: A Retrospective, which opens on Friday, reviews Mr. Stella’s nearly 60-year odyssey through and beyond painting, and back again with about 70 often quite large artworks supplemented by drawings, prints, photographs and studies. It moves from his days at the pinnacle of the New York art world as a Minimalist prodigy and the brightest hope of abstract painting through his rogue years as Minimalism’s most prominent, unrepentant apostate. Mr. Stella began by painting himself into a corner — defining his medium so literally that there seemed nothing left to do with it — and has spent most of his career blasting his way out." -Roberta Smith
