Frank Stella, in full Frank Philip Stella, (born May 12, 1936, Malden, Massachusetts, U.S.), American painter who began as a leading figure in the Minimalist art movement and later became known for his irregularly shaped works and large-scale multimedia reliefs.

Beckmann often represented himself in disguise or costumed to express his own view that life is a series of roles to be played.

His gaze is challenging, but it also creates a sense of immediacy in its directness.

None of Hockney portraits are commissioned; for this series he invited family, members of his staff, and close friends to sit for him including several curators, art dealers, and collectors This image above is of legendary world renown art collector Larry Gagosian (2013).
