In January 2017 the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation announced the appointment of Douglas Dreishpoon, an art historian, curator, writer, and educator, as Director of the Helen Frankenthaler Catalogue Raisonné, effective March 1, 2017. Mr. Dreishpoon will oversee the development and production of the catalogue raisonné of Helen Frankenthaler’s paintings, works on paper, and mediums other than prints*, which the Foundation intends to publish in both print and digital editions. He will additionally serve as Editor of the publication.


Periodic updates will be posted on this page as new information about the project becomes available.


*A catalogue raisonné of the artist’s prints, Frankenthaler: A Catalogue Raisonné, Prints 1961–1994, by Suzanne Boorsch and Pegram Harrison, was published in 1996 by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. An addendum covering Frankenthaler’s work in prints from 1994 onward is planned as a future project.
