Catalogue Note

"A really good picture looks as if it's happened at once. It's an immediate image...I think very often it takes ten of those over-labored efforts to produce one really beautiful wrist motion that is synchronized with your head and heart, and you have it, and there it looks as if it were born in a minute."

Helen Frankenthaler
