Helen Frankenthaler and Robert Motherwell
November 2 through December 31, 2013
Bergamot Station 2525 Michigan Avenue, B6, Santa Monica, CA 90404
Abstract Expressionists Helen Frankenthaler and Robert Motherwell were married for thirteen years, from 1958-1971, and Leslie Sacks Fine Art’s current show pairs late career work by both artists — his from the 1980s and 1990s, before his 1991 death, and hers from the early 2000s, before her death in 2011. The artists’ paintings are similarly colorful, though it’s not hard to tell her fuller environments from his more minimal ones.
