Catalogue Note

"Works on paper, such as The Joker from September 1959 and Heavenly Twins, probably from the winter, use the format developed in Las Mayas and Nude of an open, white interior 'body' with imagery within it, but do so in a more baldly graphic way."

John Elderfield, Frankenthaler, New York 1988, p. 137
