Art books: Helen Frankenthaler- Woodcuts

Another art book, this time Helen Frankenthaler. Frankenthaler was an American abstract expressionist artist. I love her big blustery colour field paintings, but her woodcuts are also powerful in colour with contrasting delicate mark-making. I love the rawness of these prints with wood grain showing or handwritten notes visible. To me the book has a feel of sketchbook pages with that  experimentational quality and the possibilities still evident.
