Roberta Smith has written a sensitive and well-informed article entitled “HELEN FRANKENTHALER: ‘East and Beyond’”  in the Art & Design section of The New York Times reviewing the eponymous show at Knoedler and Company (through 11 March 2011, 19 East 70th Street, New York City).  Smith, in her careful, evocative style, discusses the  links between Frankenthaler’s work and the work of James McNeill Whistler, both of whom “learned a great deal from Asian art, including Chinese ink painting and calligraphy and Japanese screens”, and longs for “a fuller account of Ms. Frankenthaler’s long, resolutely focused career”.
