What You See Is What You See: Frank Stella and the Anderson Collection at SFMOMA
UNITED STATES
SAN FRANCISCO  •  San Francisco Museum of Modern Art  •  Ongoing
 
In 1964 Frank Stella said of his paintings, "What you see is what you see," coining a phrase that exemplified the minimalist movement. The eight works in this presentation span Stella's career, from his minimalist Black Paintings of the 1960s to his explosive, colorful reliefs of the 1980s to his most recent work. Shown together for the first time are a group of phenomenal gifts to the Museum — seven paintings from Mr. and Mrs. Harry W. Anderson and one from the artist himself.
