Synopsis: In 1952, at the age of 23, Helen Frankenthaler created her legendary painting Mountains and Sea. She poured thinned-down pigment directly onto unprimed canvas to be absorbed into its fibers. This large painting, the first in which Frankenthaler used her soak-stain technique, synthesized the influences that had informed her work to that point and announces her arrival as a mature artist. Published to accompany a 1998 exhibition at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, this book focuses on Mountains and Sea and other groundbreaking paintings of Frankenthaler's early career. In this period, Frankenthaler drew upon Cubism, the abstractions of Arshile Gorky and, especially, those of Jackson Pollock, whose radical technique inspired her to reject easel painting. Frankenthaler herself became associated with the second generation of the New York School and her unique method and experimental use of materials influenced her contemporaries and subsequent generations of artists.

Book Description Eine Publikation des Solomo R. Guggenheim Foundation. Mit Texten von Julia Brown u.a. 1952 malte die gerade 23jährige Helen Frankenthaler ihr legendäres Gemälde »Mountains and Sea«. Das großformatige Gemälde entstand in der von ihr entwickelten »Einfärbetechnik«, bei der die verdünnte Farbe auf eine nicht grundierte Leinwand aufgetragen wird. Das dünnflüssige Öl/Terpentingemisch dringt dabei in die unbehandelte Leinwand ein: So entstehen Gemälde von aquarellhafter Wirkung, in denen Farbe und Leinwand, Form und Inhalt sich vereinen. (Text engl.) 24,5 x 27,5 cm, 96 S., 77 Abb., davon 77 Farbabb., Kunstleinen. Bookseller Inventory # 400378
