NEW YORK, NY.- Ameringer/McEnery/Yohe is presenting an exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Helen Frankenthaler (b. 1928). “Helen Frankenthaler” will remain on view through January 23, 2010. This marks the fourth exhibition of the artist’s work at Ameringer/McEnery/Yohe.

Helen Frankenthaler is one of the country’s most distinguished living artists. Born in New York City in 1928, Frankenthaler attended the Dalton School where she studied under Rufino Tamayo and later graduated from Bennington College in Vermont. Upon returning to New York, she quickly became a notable fixture among the avant-garde art world and New York School of painters, which included David Smith, Lee Krasner, Jackson Pollock, Willem and Elaine de Kooning, Franz Kline, Adolph Gottlieb, Barnett Newman, and influential critic Clement Greenberg, an early champion of her work.

Frankenthaler was a transitional figure between the first and second generation of Abstract Expressionists, In 1952, she completed the groundbreaking painting, Mountains and Sea (on long-term loan to the National Gallery in Washington, D.C.) in which she developed her “soak-stain” painting technique by pouring thinned paint onto unprimed canvas. With this work Frankenthaler superseded first-generation Abstract Expressionism and anticipated the Color Field School, joining painterly vigor and lyrical restraint. Frankenthaler’s early works and their effects on her colleagues and contemporaries, such as Kenneth Noland and Morris Louis, is a well documented aspect of the history of 20th-century American art. In addition to works on canvas, Frankenthaler has worked on paper with the same seriousness that she brings to large-scale paintings, producing an impressive body of ambitious watercolors, gouaches, and mixed media works.

Frankenthaler’s first gallery exhibition was held at Tibor de Nagy Gallery in New York in 1951, and her first solo museum exhibition in1960 at The Jewish Museum, New York. Frankenthaler’s paintings, drawings, and prints may be found in major museum collections throughout the world. In 2001, she was awarded the National Medal of Arts and in 2003 she received the Skowhegan Medal for Painting. She is a member of the National Institute of Arts and Letters. Helen Frankenthaler currently lives and works in Connecticut.
