The first major UK exhibition of woodcuts by leading Abstract Expressionist, Helen Frankenthaler.
Frankenthaler (1928–2011) is recognized among the most important American abstract artists of the 20th century, widely credited for her pivotal role in the transition from Abstract Expressionism to Color Field painting. She experimented tirelessly throughout her six-decade long career, producing a large body of work across multiple mediums. Opening ten years after her death, this exhibition shines a light on the artist’s groundbreaking woodcuts, which appear painterly and spontaneous with expanses of colour and fluid forms. It will reveal Frankenthaler as a trailblazer of the printmaking movement, who endlessly pushed possibilities through her experimentation.
To coincide with this exhibition, the Monet x Frankenthaler display brings together two seminal works by Claude Monet and Helen Frankenthaler to reveal similarities in the artists' ambition and approach. Entry to the display is included in your exhibition ticket.
