Ahab’s Leg

Ahab’s Leg, 1989 by Frank Stella is from The Waves II series.  This print is a Lithograph with Screenprint and Linocut in Colors with hand-coloring, marbling, and collage on T.H. Saunders paper, the full sheet.  Signed, dated, and numbered from the edition of 60 in the lower right.  There were also 10 artist proofs.  Published by Waddington Graphics, London.

One of the most important living artists, Frank Stella is recognized as the most significant painter that transitioned from Abstract Expressionism to Minimalism. He believes that the painting should be the central object of interest rather than representative of some subject outside of the work. Stella experimented with relief and created sculptural pieces with prominent properties of collage included. Rejecting the normalities of Minimalism, the artist transformed his style in a way that inspired those who had lost hope for the practice. Stella lives in Malden, Massachusetts and is based in New York and Rock Tavern, New York.
