Peter’s Auction Pick of the Day: Helen Frankenthaler

“A really good picture looks as if it’s happened at once. It’s an immediate image…one really beautiful wrist motion that is synchronised with your head and heart, and you have it, and therefore it looks as if it were born in a minute.” –Helen Frankenthaler

Throughout her six-decade career, Helen Frankenthaler created a dramatic body of highly expressive abstract painting, unmatched in intensity and lyricism. Created in 1976, Jade demonstrates Frankenthaler’s facility with acrylics. The work carries Frankenthaler’s signature balance of control and spontaneity. Peter Loughrey, director of LAMA, states, “paintings like this don’t come up in this market very often and LAMA doesn’t always get the opportunity to present works of this stature – it’s a great painting at a very attractive estimate.”
