Just a great photo

This is Helen Frankenthaler, (b.1928) in her NYC studio, 1956. 
She belonged to my favourite period of art, Post Painterly Abstraction and Colourfield painting from 1950's/60's America. This is such a great image. I love how she is all bobby socks and headbands and could be straight out of an Elvis movie, yet there she sits, staring back at us, surrounded by her impressive and beautiful paintings.

Yes, it's intriguing, an interesting life story I'm sure.
