  • Provenance: The Estate of Jane Reisman and Neil Peter Jampolis, Los Angeles, CA
  • Notes: Helen Frankenthaler is one of the cornerstone artists of the color field painting movement. Her process was a layered one. She began her paintings with poured pigment that she allowed to absorb into raw canvas rather than the conventional approach of a primed canvas where all marks would situate themselves properly on top of the picture plane. Frankenthaler is a legend within the painting community, exhibiting for more than six decades and moving painting forward with each new body of work. The work on offer, "West Wind" made around 1997 demonstrates her signature wash and impeccable composition.

  • Condition: Generally good condition. The full sheet with deckled edges. The colors fresh. Framed floating and hinged to the back mat.

    Frame: 47" H x 41" W x 1.5" D
