Helen Frankenthaler, one of my favorite artists, died yesterday. An amazing abstract expressionist artist, she lived through the art period that many abstract artists (me included) only read (dream) about. She married Robert Motherwell (also a fave of mine) and knew other amazing artists of the time; Jackson Pollock, Willem and Elaine de Kooning and Franz Kline.

Helen, you are missed.
Almost as beautiful as her work are these portraits of her by Ernst Haas. They are beautiful.
