Join us for a special conversation on Helen Frankenthaler’s Phoenix, 1976, and the advent of Abstract Expressionism in the West. Frankenthaler pioneered her trademark staining technique, where paintings like the one at the American Museum of Western Art were created by pouring thin layers of paint onto unprimed canvas. With her unique style, Frankenthaler interpreted the experience of the West through color and emotion instead of realism and detail.
