Known as one of the most prolific artists of the 20th century, Helen Frankenthaler had a career that spanned over six decades. She is revered for contributing to the Color Field painting movement. She pushed the boundaries of contemporary art by introducing the soak-stain technique in the 1950s. Frankenthaler used translucent paint to create abstract bodies. Rago’s 20 | 21 Art auction will be presenting Helen Frankenthaler’s 1973 soak-stain work from the Thanksgiving Day series. The available lot shows a green block encircled by colorful lines.
Also available is Jacques Lipschitz’s The Terrified One. Working with bronze and stone, Lipschitz’s compositions often revolved around mythological and biblical themes. Although he was initially inclined towards Cubism, the artist eventually shifted to a more figurative and expressive style. The available sculpture was executed in 1936. This auction also offers artworks from renowned artists such as Andy Warhol, Larry Zox, and Alfred Leslie. View more of these lots and register to bid online on Rago’s website.
