Artist

Helen Frankenthaler

With the passing of Helen Frankenthaler at 83 years of age, on Dec. 26th, came the loss of a truly great American artist and a Hamilton-Selway favorite. Frankenthaler made a name for herself in the early 1950's through her distinct style of painting. At the time, she was a pioneer in what is known as color-field painting and believed that a "really good picture looks as if it all happened at once." Her goal in painting was to arrive at a picture that seized the eye and the mind at the same time. She would achieve this by blurring the line between image and background. Frankenthaler's prints capture the dream-like atmosphere of her often monumental paintings remarkably well, as you can see with the attached piece, "Contentment Island". She will be very, very missed.

It's a beautiful painting but Amazon chose to display it upside down. Maybe that's why the price is so low?

I think Amazon made a mistake with this painting. As I recall, this is not "Adirondacks" but "yellow, orange, red and black paint on a canvas" and it sold for 3 bux at auction recently (without the frame of course).

Really? I mean, c'mon...my son brought paintings similar to this home at least a couple times a week from day care all this last year. Dude, she uses some leftover paint and calls it art. I don't think so.

However while my son's works reflect a more melancholy and urban palate, Frankenthaler's palate is much more limited and less descriptive overall due to her poor use of medium application on this canvas. While the overall tone is one of fear, the ultimate and lingering emotional response is one of sadness, and even death. Whereas my son's happy face sun zapping dog poop painting resonates with happiness, freedom, and (dare I say it) the promise of enlightenment. Frankenthaler has missed this, and she creates a moody, alienating aura around her own work. I at least can continue to enjoy robot poop and dinosaur poop paintings of a much higher caliber. IMHO.

I think is a pretty good job of painting. However, I must say that I have looked up pictures of the Adirondacks on Bing image search, and most of what I see doesn't look like this. I think maybe the artist mistitled this?

Well that's a very cool painting indeed, but he price seems a little too high. I can offer you two dollars.
