"Without Limits: Helen Frankenthaler, Abstraction, and the Language of Print"

A key figure in the development of color-field painting, Helen Frankenthaler (1928-2011) was a tireless experimenter with color, form, and technique over the course of her life. When Frankenthaler began creating prints in 1961, she had to adapt to a medium that would involve collaboration and a new language of printmaking techniques. Asking questions that began, "Suppose I do…" or "Suppose I try…" she approached lithographs, screenprints, etchings, and woodcuts with curiosity and vision. Frankenthaler achieved the same balance of control and chance she cultivated in her painting practice through many annotated proofs, or trial prints, that traced her progress towards the final impression. She, along with other artists, contributed to a printmaking renaissance in the mid-20th century.
