Helen Frankenthaler

Have you heard of Helen Frankenthaler? I first ran into her work during a Graduate School class on Abstract Expressionists. What an amazing class. What an amazing artist! I’ve had a soft spot for her ever since. Her work is stunning, simple and sensational. And from what I can remember from the class, she was one of the first to experiment with an unprimed canvas. For my class I tried my hand at her style, one still hangs prominently in our house. Here’s a link to more of her work. Amazing. I might just have to pick up my brushes again.
