As the story goes, artist Frank Stella decided to reread the novel Moby-Dick after visiting an aquarium with his family and becoming intrigued with a beluga whale. Stella’s response to Herman Melville’s 1851 account of the now-legendary great white was a pledge to make a painting for each of the book’s 135 chapters. The Modern is showing five magnificent works from the artist’s Moby-Dick series in Frank Stella: A Retrospective.
