I really liked her piece when I saw it in Fleming and I liked what the book had to say about her blotting acrylics as if they were watercolors. I was intrigued so I decided to look her up on google when I found this picture.
I didn't realize Frankenthaler worked in such large dimensions. Furthermore, in this picture, her painting style reminds me Pollock in that she physically gets in her paintings just because they are so large. Although she may not be classified as an action painter, she still has to become very physically involved with the piece as with Pollock.
To me her art is just as revolutionary as Pollock, yet I did not learn about her until this month whereas I've known about Pollock for some years now. Who or what determines what becomes such famous art?
