Friedel Dzubas (1919 - 1994) was an abstract painter who mainly worked in monumental proportions, creating huge works with multiple swaths of different colors, often equal to one another in scale. Originally from Germany, Dzubas relocated to New York in 1938 to escape the Nazi regime. His most memorable works were created in the decade that followed as he shared a studio with fellow abstract painter Helen Frankenthaler in the early 1950s. Frankenthaler contributed to the movements of Abstract Expressionism, Lyrical Abstraction, and Color Field Painting throughout his career, accumulating many awards including two consecutive Guggenheim Fellowships (1966-1968). Before his death, he taught at institutions such as Cornell University and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
