Helen Frankenthaler obituary

I love these stunning photographs of Helen Frankenthaler amongst her paintings in her New York City studio. Photographed by Gordon Parks for LIFE magazine ca. And here she is at work, photographed by Ernst Haas in her studio in 1969

in 1996, tracey emin lived in a locked room in a gallery for fourteen days, with nothing but a lot of empty canvases and art materials, in an attempt to reconcile herself with paintings. viewed through a series of wide-angle lenses embedded in the walls, emin could be watched, stark naked, shaking off her painting demons.
