Kunsthalle Krems and Museum Folkwang are presenting the painterly work of Helen Frankenthaler the great abstract expressionist and outstanding artist of the 20th century. Frankenthaler lived and worked in the epicenter of the New York School and created her groundbreaking abstract soak-stain pictures in the early 1950s, in succession of Jackson Pollock’s Drip Paintings. It is considered a bridgehead between Action Painting and Color Field painting.

The focus of the publication are the painterly constellations on the medias canvas and paper. Over 70 works on paper – from the late 1940s to the early 2000s – are juxtaposed with an exclusive selection of paintings from the individual phases of Frankenthaler’s artistic oeuvre. Frankenthaler’s work is barely represented in European museums and collections and has seldom been shown extensively in German-speaking countries. The majority of the works depicted in the catalogue come from the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation in New York, supplemented by private collections and institutions.
