One of the defining artists of American Abstract Expressionism, Frankenthaler was born in New York in 1928. Trained at Bennington College and with Wallace Harrison and Hans Hofmann, Frankenthaler is concerned with developing a close relationship between image and surface and with the specifics of the medium of paint. One of Frankenthaler's favored techniques, staining the canvas with the pigment and allowing the different layers to show through, has become a quintessential characteristic of Abstract Expressionism in general, and her work in particular.
