Description

The creative process and sources of inspiration behind Frank Stella’s Polish Village series. Preparatory and dimensional drawings, wooden relief models, and painted cardboard models reveal Stella’s method for transforming these sacred structures, which he discovered in 1970 in Maria and Kazimierz Piechotka’s publication Wooden Synagogues, into large abstract reliefs, each bearing the name of a Polish town which once housed a wooden synagogue. Monumental catalog with essays and interviews, including “Memory of Architecture, Architecture of Memory: Frank Stella and the Phenomenon of Wooden Synagogues” (Artur Tanikowski), “Between Warsaw and Łunna Wola: The Department of Polish Architecture and Surveying Wooden Synagogues”, (Wojciech Wółkowski), and “Before Stella: From Sosnowski to the Piechotkas” (Clifford Chanin). No itemized listing.
