Helen Frankenthaler Inspired (or is it Richard Diebenkorn?)

Evergreen School Art

Inspiration

One of my favorite ways to experience children’s art is to find connections to works from art history. This piece by an Evergreen student made me first think of the abstractions of Morris Louis and then Helen Frankenthaler.  The longer I look, the more I think of a Richard Diebenkorn landscape.  What do you see?  The work of a sophisticated colorist or the exuberance and spontaneity of a 4-year old?
