Helen Frankenthaler has died. It seems odd that Pollock's expressionism is still so powerful that Frankenthaler's work is sometimes seen as valuable as an escape from Pollock.

I always liked her work. I'm trying to like Pollock, but it isn't easy, though I can now see why he had such a stupendous impact.

The recent book on De Kooning was helpful.

Oh and I'm reading some Motherwell.
