Helen Frankenthaler In Her Time And Now, lecture by Elizabeth Smith

The Kreeger Museum, Washington, D.C.

February 6, 2019

The program will consider the work of Frankenthaler as a second-generation Abstract Expressionist and her pioneering role in the development of the Color Field school, with a special focus on the painting Hurricane Flag as a key example of Frankenthaler’s work of the late 1960s and in context of the artist’s six-decade career.
