Robert Motherwell and Frank Stella: Prints from the Permanent Collection

Saturday, March 6–Sunday, June 13, 2004

Robert Motherwell (American, 1915-1991). Gesture I (State I), 1976-77. Aquatint, edition 20/75. 35 x 26 inches (88.9 x 66 cm). Collection Albright-Knox Art Gallery; Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Charles U. Banta, 1993.

The Albright-Knox is renowned for its important collection of post-war American painting and sculpture. What is less known is that the museum also has a significant collection of post-war American prints. Two of America’s greatest printmakers, Robert Motherwell (1915-1991) and Frank Stella (born 1936), are particularly well represented. Organized by Curator of Modern Art Kenneth Wayne, this exhibition featured a selection of etchings, aquatints, lithographs, and screen prints by these two influential American artists.
