Helen Frankenthaler (New York, December 12, 1928 - Darien, Connecticut, December 27, 2011) 1 was an American abstract expressionist painter. She was influenced by the work of Jackson Pollock and Clement Greenberg with whom she was also involved in the Abstract Art Movement of 1946-1960. She was the youngest daughter of a New York State Supreme Court magistrate. He studied at the Dalton School with Rufino Tamayo and also at Bennington College in Vermont. Later she married fellow painter Robert Motherwell. His career was launched in 1952 with the exhibition "Mountains and Sea" (Mountains and Sea). This painting is large (7 by 10 feet) and has the effect of a watercolor, although it is painted with oil. In it, he introduces the technique of painting directly on an unprepared canvas so that the material absorbs the colors. I greatly diluted the oil paint with turpentine or kerosene so that the color would soak into the canvas. This technique, known as soak stain, was adopted by other artists, notably Morris Louis and Kenneth Noland, and launched the second generation of the color field painting school. This method left the canvas with a halo effect around each area where the paint was applied.
