DESCRIPTION

The museum breaks out the cream of the contemporary collection—a selection of the most important paintings and sculptures
that have not been on view for years (and in one case, has never been on view until now). Among the works is Frank Stella’s gigantic metal assemblage-relief Marsaxlokk Bay, from his Malta Series; Minimalist masterpieces such as a Cor-Ten steel and Plexiglas “stack” by Donald Judd; a large untitled gestural work by Robert Motherwell from his Beside the Sea body of works, a quintessential example of Abstract Expressionist art; and two canvases by Sam Francis that illustrate two periods of his work, Black and Red (1950-53) from his so-called “cell” paintings and an untitled work (1968) from his Edge Series.

Don’t miss these works before they go back into the vaults.
