frankenthallerclaiborneHelen Frankenthaler is an American Abstract Expressionist painter, and has exhibited her work over six decades. She began exhibiting her large-scale abstract expressionist paintings in important contemporary museums and galleries in the early 1950s. She was included in the 1964 Post-Painterly Abstraction exhibition curated by Clement Greenberg that introduced a newer generation of abstract painting that came to be known as Color Field. In 2001 she was awarded the National Medal of Arts. Craig Claiborne invented the restaurant review as we know it, a four star system based on multiple visits. Known as an exacting and honest critic, he was the first male editor of the food section of the New York Times and remained on the Times staff until his retirement in 1988. He was also prolific writer, with his cookbooks selling in the millions.
