schema:description"This volume provides an overview of the development of shaped paintings (paintings that are not square or rectangular in format) and details American painter Frank Stella's (b. 1936) contribution to art in the early and mid 1960s. Although based on simple geometries, the works in this book constitutes some of the most complex artistic statements of Frank Stella's career. The eleven compositions combine different numbers of shapes to create daringly irregular outlines. Stella made four versions of each composition, varying the color combinations. They mark a radical shift from the artist's earlier striped works in their use of large fields of color. The asymmetric canvases play with illusion, confronting Stella's previous emphasis on flatness while anticipating his career-long exploration of space and volume in both painting and sculpture."@en
