Published by Knoedler & Company.
Text by Karen Wilkin.

Frankenthaler at Eighty commemorates painter Helen Frankenthaler's eightieth birthday with a selection of masterworks from her own collection. Published concurrently with an exhibition at New York's Knoedler & Company, this handsome volume--the cover of which features Frankenthaler's great painting, "A Green Thought in a Green Shade" (1981)--pays tribute to the painter's long and distinguished career, with a fully illustrated survey of the works chosen for the exhibition, which represent quintessential paintings from each period of her career. Also included are historic photographs of Frankenthaler and a detailed chronology studded with reprinted images from periodicals, including art magazine covers. An essay by curator Karen Wilkin--who worked closely with Frankenthaler in the curation of this exhibition, and who has worked with the painter extensively for decades--sheds new light on the painter's tremendous contribution to American art during the last half-century.

After Mountains And Sea: Frankenthaler 1956-1959After Mountains And Sea: Frankenthaler 1956-1959

Published by Guggenheim Museum.
Essays by Susan Cross and Julia Brown.

In 1952, at the age of 23, Helen Frankenthaler created her legendary painting Mountains and Sea. She poured thinned-down pigment directly onto unprimed canvas to be absorbed into its fibers. This large painting, the first in which Frankenthaler used her soak-stain technique, synthesized the influences that had informed her work to that point and announces her arrival as a mature artist. Published to accompany a 1998 exhibition at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, this book focuses on Mountains and Sea and other groundbreaking paintings of Frankenthaler's early career. In this period, Frankenthaler drew upon Cubism, the abstractions of Arshile Gorky and, especially, those of Jackson Pollock, whose radical technique inspired her to reject easel painting. Frankenthaler herself became associated with the second generation of the New York School and her unique method and experimental use of materials influenced her contemporaries and subsequent generations of artists.
