Born in 1936 in Malden, Massachusetts (USA)
Stella’s earlier works were oriented towards geometric abstraction aimed at suppressing all traces of pictorial goals, or any trace of the intervention of the painter’s hand, as well as any suggestion of sensitivity between the artist and his work.
This body of work that was begun in 1958 corresponds to the best known period of the artist and is generally considered the primary influence for the increase in popularity of minimal art and even some principals of Pop Art.
Less known, however, is his other pictorial period that develops towards the middle of the 1970s: atypical and gigantic in size, this part of his work is qualified at times as being his “Baroque” period.
