Stain Painter Helen Frankenthaler Dies at 83

Seminal postpainterly expressionist Helen Frankenthaler died on December 27 at age 83, after a long illness, reports Art Daily. Since her first solo exhibition at NY’s Tibor De Nagy gallery in 1951, which pointed to a way out of brushy ab-ex towards color field painting, Frankenthaler experimented with many media- most recently woodblock printmaking.
