One of the world's leading painters and printmakers, the artist Frank Stella spent over a decade creating a major series of works linked with Herman Melville's classic
novel Moby-Dick. Stella has created one or more works for each of the novel's 135 chapters. The completed series consists of 266 pieces: large metal reliefs, prints, monumental sculptures, a mural, and other items. The entire series is a highly ambitious, subtle, and liberating response to the novel. Frank Stella's Moby-Dick series is an extraordinary venture on a massive scale by a major artist.
Robert K. Wallace, an expert on Melville, has written a clear and comprehensive interpretation of Stella's artistic evolution during the creation of this series. Frank Stella's Moby-Dick describes the development of the series, traces its distribution and reception around the world, analyzes its rich and complex relation to the novel, and addresses the joint value of Stella's series and Melville's novel in expanding the consciousness of a shrinking world in the late twentieth century.
Items from the Moby-Dick series have been exhibited in the United States, Europe, and Japan, but never before has there been a way to view them as a whole. Frank Stella's Moby-Dick provides the definitive documentation of this artistic achievement. Accompanied by more than 200 illustrations, Robert Wallace's text includes a chronology and a catalog of the artwork, as well as a list of exhibitions.
