Frank Stella (American, b. 1936)
5/6/2016 - Modern Art: Live Salesroom Auction
Tuftonboro
lithograph
signed, dated 1974, and numbered 6/100 l.r.
framed
22.25 x 17.25 in. (sheet), 23 x 18 in. (framed)

A part of his series of irregular polygons, Stella noted that "Tuftonboro is actually one of my favorites. The bad is obviously a spring and is going to propel the triangle out. The triangle is pushing back, but the spring has the ability to push it out. So that creates a nice feeling in the painting." A Guide to the Exhibition, Frank Stella Irregular Polygons 1965-66, Toledo Museum of Art, 2011.
