The making of
Frank Stella & The Broken Jug
Since November 2nd 2021 The Broken Jug, an enormous sculpture created by world famous artist Frank Stella, can be seen in Harlingen. The work is 12 metres high and 14 metres wide, it weighs 45,000 kilograms.
The arrival of this work by an American artist inspired municipal museum Het Hannemahuis to organise an exhibition placing the sculpture in context, using six models of Stella’s works and a series of photos. The models were made in Stella’s New York studio especially for the Harlingen exhibition. Together with the photos they illustrate how Frank Stella goes about the creation of his sculptures.
Naturally much attention is devoted to the Broken Jug but also to other works such as Monel Star, The Grand Cascapedia and Kedgwick. Altogether an interesting insight into Frank Stella’s world.
