Helen Frankenthaler, an abstract painter known for her bold, lyrical use of color who led a postwar art movement that would later be termed Color Field painting, died Tuesday at her home in Connecticut, her nephew said. She was 83.
Helen Frankenthaler, an abstract painter known for her bold, lyrical use of color who led a postwar art movement that would later be termed "color field" painting, died Tuesday at her home in Connecticut, her nephew said. She was 83.
"Very few artists are able to develop a vocabulary and create an aesthetic that affects other artists deeply," said Ross. "She was the one who transmitted a certain kind of freedom and boldness use of the subconscious and impulse from the Abstract Expressionists on through the Color Field painters."
In later years, Ross said, she seemed to have fallen out of favor "because of her embrace of beauty."
