“The heroine Paint”: After Frankenthaler

Regular price Regular price $40

Taking Helen Frankenthaler’s 1950s New York debut as its starting point, “The heroine Paint”: After Frankenthaler, edited by Katy Siegel, follows Frankenthaler’s own painting practice as well as the immediate influence of her work on other artists, tracing artistic currents gathered under her name as they move outward in different directions over time.

The book features scholarly essays, texts from contemporary artists, and reprints of historical writing from seventeen authors, including John Elderfield, Suzanne Hudson, and Laura Owens, as well as Siegel. These texts are interwoven with a visual chronology documenting over seven decades of key works, performances, publications, and cultural ephemera.
