Helen Frankenthaler: Sea Change: A Decade of Paintings, 1974–1983
This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Helen Frankenthaler: Sea Change: A Decade of Paintings, 1974–1983 at Gagosian, Rome. In the summer of 1974, Frankenthaler rented a house at Shippan Point in Stamford, Connecticut, facing the waters of Long Island Sound, marking the beginning of an important period of change for her work. Sea Change comprises eleven canvases that Frankenthaler painted between 1974 and 1983, which reflect her responses to the changing appearance of the wide vistas and moving tides. The publication features an essay by John Elderfield, and is illustrated with full-color plates and documentary photographs.
