Persistently experimental over some sixty years, Helen Frankenthaler (1928–2011) produced an impressive oeuvre comprising unique paintings on canvas and paper, as well as ceramics, sculpture, tapestry, and especially printmaking.
The Helen Frankenthaler Catalogue Raisonné, LLC (the “Project”), will record works in all of the above mediums other than print editions.*
The catalogue raisonné will document information relevant to each artwork—detailed histories of ownership, exhibitions, and publication history—as well as to Frankenthaler’s creative process—materials, tools, and techniques.
The Project, which seeks information about any artworks, except prints, thought to be by Helen Frankenthaler, will soon make a questionnaire available to those who believe they own a work by the artist.
