Helen Frankenthaler, December 12, 1928 - December 27, 2011

The art world lost an amazing talent yesterday, Helen Frankenthaler. She was a leading force in the postwar abstract expressionist movement and established Colour Field Painting. She worked steadily for years as an artist, influencing many others along the way.

"What concerns me when I work, is not whether the picture is a landscape, or whether it's pastoral, or whether somebody will see a sunset in it. What concerns me is - did I make a beautiful picture?" 
                                                                                                                        - Helen Frankenthaler

The above images feature just a small selection of her work and the internet cannot possibly do it justice.
