Helen Frankenthaler Prints
The Romance of a New Medium
April 20–September 3, 2018
Art Institute of Chicago
For nearly two decades Helen Frankenthaler produced prints at the Universal Limited Art Editions workshop. This exhibition presents more than fifty prints of Frankenthaler’s ULAE productions along with rare and important loans, including proofs from the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation that illustrate the artist’s working methods and explore the evolution of an image from initial idea to final published edition.
