LOST PAINTER,LOST SCULPTURE
Helen Frankenthayler with her blue lady
lost sculpture of Barbara Hepworth:divided circle
Helen Frankenthayler,the American abstract expressionist died t age 83.
She followed Jackson Polack's dripping technique but soacked canvas with watery pigments and paints.
Meanwhile another metal sculpture,this time Barbara Hepworth's divided circle,has been stolen in England,due to shortage of metals and soaring prices!
