Art Lovers Book Club: Fierce Poise: Helen Frankenthaler and 1950s New York by Alexander Nemerov
Jun 15, 2023, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
At the dawn of the 1950s, a promising and dedicated young painter named Helen Frankenthaler, fresh out of college, moved back home to New York City to make her name. By the decade's end, she had succeeded in establishing herself as an important American artist of the postwar period. In the years in between, she made some of the most daring, head-turning paintings of her day and also came into her own as a woman: traveling the world, falling in and out of love, and engaging in an ongoing artistic education.
