Helen Frankenthaler is a painter born on Decembre 12, 1928 in New York and died on December 27, 2011 in Darien, Connecticut. She studied painting and drawing at the Dalton School with Mexican painter Rufino Tamayo, before joining the Bennington College in 1946, where she was taught by painter Paul Feeley who taught him the bases of Cubism.

Influenced by Cubism for a longtime, her work is marked by abstract Expressionism and more particularly by Color-Field painting. She also uses the technique of "Color Stain" (stained color, according to art historian Sam Hunter), poured directly on the support. Her work was the object of a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art of New York city in 1989. In 1993, it was the National Gallery of Art of Washington that exhibited her work.
