Frank Stella's curiosity about ideas, techniques and media keeps his work fresh and fascinating and makes him difficult to categorize. For example, in this print he used traditional printing processes in new and innovative ways.

Unlike much of Stella's work that is serenely geometric, this work thrives on disorder and intensity. Not surprisingly, its name, Estoril, refers to a race track in Portugal. It is one in a series of monumental prints related to a series of paintings. The painting series and the print series are each called the Circuit Series and were inspired by race tracks Stella visited in the 1970s.
