For #storiesMW we present Helen Frankenthaler’s ‘Candle.’ Yes, we know, it is hard to Instagram, but do you know why? Frankenthaler would commonly paint large scale pieces, and select strips to cut and turn into paintings in their own right, and this is one of those works.
This piece was donated by Barbara Higgins, who has been a docent and volunteer at the museum since 1968, and still gives tours to this day! Try to catch her on a day she’s working so she can give you the full scoop. #museumweek #volunteers
