Helen Frankenthaler: Painting without Rules

Palazzo Strozzi

Florence, Italy

The largest presentation of Helen Frankenthaler’s work in Italy, this survey comprises 33 of Frankenthaler’s poetic abstractions in an examination of her artistic affinities, influences, and friendships. The exhibition interweaves paintings Frankenthaler created between 1953 and 2002 with select works by some of her contemporaries, including Anthony Caro, Morris Louis, Robert Motherwell, Kenneth Noland, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, David Smith, and Anne Truitt.


In addition to significant loans from the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation as well as international museums and private collections, the presentation also features works by her peers that were part of the artist’s personal collection.


Co-organized by Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi and the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation, the exhibition is curated by Douglas Dreishpoon, Director, Helen Frankenthaler Catalogue Raisonné.
