The art of Helen Frankenthaler has been discussed, admired, and collected -by major museums and private owners alike- since she appeared on the art scene in the early 1950s.
Now, for the first time in twenty years, a paintings retrospective spanning Frankenthaler's career has been mounted and is presented in this book. The exhibition's curator, E. A. Carmean, Jr., has spent many hours over the past five years talking with the artist and examining her paintings, first generally, then moving to more specific discussions concerning individual works. The resulting selection of forty paintings represents more than just a chronological overview of the artist's career, rather, the works illustrate key moments in her development as a painter.
In his introduction, Mr. Carmean expounds on the formal qualities of the paintings as a whole. Then, in the brief essay accompanying each work, he provides more detailed interpretations of the paintings and their particular importance within the artist's oeuvre. Frankenthaler's own words are quoted liberally throughout, lending a vital sense of the painter's presence to Carmean's analyses.
The artist's paintings are reproduced in color, and a few carefully chosen illustrations are included to aid in comparison and discussion of the works. A chronology, an exhibition history, and a bibliography round out the volume, providing the reader with valuable reference material pertinent to the paintings in the exhibition.
