FRANKENTHALER--Helen. The American Academy of Arts and Letters notes with sorrow the death of our esteemed colleague. With its graceful spontaneity and masterful deployment of color, her work re-made abstraction into a fabric on which both light and depths call to each other. She changed the ways we can see the world.
