Helen Frankenthaler, (US, 1928-2001), Ebbing

I’m unconvinced by the merits of most abstract art but some is lovely. For an excellent critical article on her work, see this link.


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    What do you find questionable about abstraction?

    I agree about merits versus lack of. Really depends on each individual painting but I concur overall. Excellent example of when it does work.
