Helen Frankenthaler. She was a major contributor to the history of postwar American painting. Frankenthaler’s style is typically identified by her use of fluid shapes, abstract masses, and lyrical gestures. She made use of large formats on which she painted, generally simplified abstract compositions. Her style is notable because of its emphasis on spontaneity, with Frankenthaler herself stating that, “A really good picture looks as if it’s happened at once.”
