Free Lecture: In and Around the Landscape: Helen Frankenthaler
Jul 2, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC-4
Helen Frankenthaler had a longstanding, if ambivalent, relationship to the tradition of landscape painting. From her earliest, reputation-making work of the 1950s, to her late, experimental paintings of the 1990s, this ambivalent relationship to landscape presents a constant tension in her art. In this opening lecture for As in Nature: Helen Frankenthaler Paintings, exhibition curator Alexandra Schwartz discusses how these twelve large-scale paintings, made over the course of Frankenthaler’s long career, engage with this tension.
As in Nature is made possible by the generous contributions of Denise Littlefield Sobel and the Mr. and Mrs. Raymond J. Horowitz Foundation for the Arts. Major support is provided by Dena and Felda Hardymon, with additional support from Richard and Carol Seltzer.
