In 1970, at age 34, Stella became the youngest artist to be given a full-scale retrospective at MOMA. His second retrospective there is celebrated by this expensive catalog, whose author is director of painting and sculpture at the museum. The new show covers the artist’s “second career,” marked by a shift away from the simple geometrical patterns of Stella’s earlier minimalist canvases toward powerful constructivist-inspired, mixed media paintings on aluminum and etched magnesium.
