Past Exhibition

Fluid Expressions: The Prints of Helen Frankenthaler, from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

When: October 6 - December 10, 2017

About the Show

Although widely known for her iconic “soak-stain” canvases, Helen Frankenthaler (1928–2011) was an equally inventive printmaker who took risks in a medium not frequently explored by abstract expressionists. Fluid Expressions: The Prints of Helen Frankenthaler highlights the artist’s often-overlooked yet powerfully evocative print production. From splattered pigments she mixed herself to layers of luscious inks, these prints pulse with creative energy.

The exhibition was organized by the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation, which through a generous grant also made possible the associated publication.

Support for the exhibition at Vassar is provided by the Friends of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center Exhibition Fund.
