February 1997

From Publishers Weekly
A protean abstract expressionist painter, Helen Frankenthaler can be tender and delicate, powerfully archetypal, explosively lyrical, quietly introspective or mystically transcendental. Her splashy, symbol-laden Eden (1956) seems to conjure up the gates of paradise itself. Her loose, evocative 1950s style, a synthesis of Gorky, de Kooning and Pollock, gave way to '60s color-field experiments a la Mark Rothko, followed by witty, complex, ambivalent metaphors of the '70s and explorations in ceramic tile, steel or clay sculpture, and works on paper. Director of drawings at New York's Museum of Modern Art, Elderfield provides the most thorough survey of Frankenthaler's stylistic growth to date in this huge, sumptuous album. She can pack more meaning into one daub of color than do many artists into an entire canvas,...


Great Paintings of the Western World

From Library Journal
Despite the grand title, this is a mindless compilation, subjective, as any would be, e.g., Thomas Hoving's Greatest Works of Art of Western Civilization (LJ 10/15/97). The three authors, who received advanced degrees in art hisotry from Columbia University or the Free University in Berlin, draw on the collections represented by Art Resource, a photo rights agency in New York, to present 300 fairly predictable "great" works. They don't actually limit themselves to paintings?ancient Roman mosaics and Greek vases and Renaissance frescoes are included?and the organization juxtaposes artists, nationalities, and schools of painting. The text is scant, uneven, and without thesis, and the images adequate. A big book, a short review: skip it.?Jack Perry Brown, Art Inst. of Chicago Lib.Copyright 1998 Reed Business...

The New York Times Book Review, Ted Loos
The excellent reproductions show to good advantage Ms. Frankenthaler's disciplined compositions, whose artful simplicity exemplified what Ms. Boorsch calls the "endless, stunning possibilities that can result from extreme restriction."


Frankenthaler: The Woodcuts

Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Widely considered one of the most important contemporary artists, Helen Frankenthaler is internationally celebrated for her role in the development of Color Field painting and for her exquisite color-saturated canvases. This publication is the first devoted to Frankenthaler's woodcuts: a body of work that represents a singular achievement by an American painter. Published to coincide with an exhibition of these extraordinary prints, Helen Frankenthaler: The Woodcuts features all twenty-four editions of the woodcuts Frankenthaler has made to date. No artist working today has achieved such painterly results with woodcut, the oldest printmaking medium. And yet her woodcuts are never simply translations of painting into print. They are, above all, woodcuts, which acknowledge and utilize the properties of the medium to...

This book recognizes the achievements of master printer Kenneth Tyler who has worked with some of the greatest artists of recent times.
