A Studio Visit with Frank Stella

Artist Frank Stella entertains us in his vast Hudson Valley studio, reflecting on works in progress as well as those being offered at Christie’s.

Looking back on his six decade-long career, the American artist Frank Stella (b. 1936) seems laid-back about the direction it has taken. ‘I had an idea — a pretty solid idea — about what I did and where it came from,’ he confesses. ‘It was basically making paintings that were 20th-century paintings. That wasn’t so complicated,’ he quips. ‘It was really quite obvious.’
