About This Book

This striking new book features fourteen paintings and two works on paper by renowned American abstract painter Helen Frankenthaler.

Showcasing fourteen of Helen Frankenthaler’s paintings, dating from 1959 through 1962, and two earlier works on paper, this beautiful book highlights a radical and lesser-known body of works unique within the artist’s oeuvre. The book includes color plates of all sixteen works, as well as four single-page and seven double-page spread details. Never before and rarely published documentary photographs appear throughout the book, along with a new and insightful text by John Elderfield. This book accompanies the 2017 exhibition of Frankenthaler’s work at Gagosian Paris.
