With its yearly exhibition COLORFUL.FARBENFROH – Im Fokus: Dorothy Fratt, Museum Art.Plus in Donaueschingen is presenting not only the first solo show ever of the great abstract colorist painter Dorothy Fratt in Europe, it is also opening a treasure trove of color, form and structure by adding a first-class mix to its collection of highly influential artists such as Keith Haring, Rainer Fetting, Gianni Dessi or Otto Herbert Hajek. A more than appropriate frame for the until now almost undiscovered legacy of Dorothy Fratt, who passed away aged 93 last year in Scottsdale, Arizona. In our research, we struck gold when we found Lilian Barker, a woman and artist who not only was a pupil of hers but saw her nearly every day since Dorothy moved into her neighbourhood back in 1958.
We are very happy to be able to share this moving and meaningful conversation we had with her.
