Helen Frankenthaler dies at 83

Nature Abhors a Vacuum 1973
The artist Helen Frankenthaler has died. She was famous for using a method she helped develop which was known as the Color Field and she was married to the artist Robert Motherwell for many years. Ms. Frankenthaler poured turpentine-thinned paint in watery washes onto the raw canvas so that it soaked into the fabric weave, becoming one with it.
