About this artwork

Bontecou referred to First Stone and Second Stone as experiments. For Third Stone, “I pushed harder,” she said, describing a more finished drawing. “It’s related to [my] sculpture, but it wasn’t for any particular sculpture. I was happy to find that in drawings or in litho, I could be so much more free—was not bound by the material. Endless space—whereas in the sculpture I have to have a frame, something to stop it.”
