Frankenthaler was an American abstract expressionist painter. She was a
major contributor to the history of postwar American painting. Frankenthaler
began exhibiting her large-scale abstract expressionist paintings in
contemporary museums and galleries in the early 1950s. She was included in
the 1964 Post-Painterly Abstraction exhibition curated by Clement Greenberg
that introduced a newer generation of abstract painting that came to be known
as Color Field. Born in Manhattan, she was influenced by Greenberg, Hans
Hofmann, and Jackson Pollock's paintings. Her work has been the subject of
several retrospective exhibitions, including a 1989 retrospective at the MOMA
in NYC. In 2001, she was awarded the National Medal of Arts.
