Frank Stella’s Protractor Series

“Frank Stella’s Protractor series are named for circular-plan towns in Asia Minor. The artist, who had recently traveled to Iran, cited Persian decorative art and architecture as the series’ inspiration: ‘The trip was a very big experience for me….There’s all that interlacing, or interweaving….Things doubling back on themselves like snakes swallowing their tails.” — The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles
