As part of the first edition of the St. Moritz Art Masters (SAM), there’s an exhibition with 5 sculptures of Frank Stella’s Bali Series and 3 sculptures of the Scarlatti Series (Courtesy Ficher Rohr Gallery, Basel). The exhibition is presented in the Paracelsus Building near the Hotel Kempinski, an old pump room of the St. Moritz Mineral Spring Water. On the first press day of SAM we met with Prof. Dr. Franz-Joachim Verspohl, who gave a short introduction to Frank Stella’s latest works. Prof. Verspohl holds the chair of Art History at the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena, Germany. Frank Stella (born in 1936) is one of the most well-known postwar American painters.
