Frankenthaler Paintings on Paper is a 114 page hard cover book with (71) beautiful full color plates and (25) black and white and full color figures. Essay by Bonnie Clearwater Painting on paper provides Frankenthaler with an arena for experimentation in gesture and control.
Her love of paper started in childhood, and she has retained the creative freedom she experienced working on paper in those early years.
Over the past 10 years, she has worked almost exclusively on paper and in a scale that sometimes rivals her large canvases measuring seven by six feet. Intriguingly, Frankenthaler paints her canvases like watercolors and her works on paper like paintings.
For her canvases, she often painted with the stain technique that she innovated during the early 1950s when she began thinning her pigments to the consistency of watercolor and pouring them onto unsized canvas.
