Dancing Through the Fields of Color
This book explores the early life of Helen Frankenthaler and inspires children to pick up their paintbrushes and see color - and the world - in their own beautiful way.
Frankenthaler became a leading artist of the Abstract Expressionist movement of the 1950s and is widely credited with launching what became known as Color Field painting. As she experimented with technique, she developed the "soak-stain" method, which involved pouring paint onto the canvas and controlling its flow with a variety of tools, such as brushes and sponges of all shapes and sizes. Her paintings can be seen in almost every museum of art in the United States.
