Julia Morrisroe is a painter and associate professor at University of Florida. Looking at Painting began as a way to share my commitment to look and occasionally write about a wide variety of painting, contemporary and historical. In particular I'm looking at this as public commonplace book, a long term project to explore what I mean when I say 'thats a painting'.

I was pretty excited to see this Frankenthaler painting at the Whitney. A lot has already been written about the new narrative at the new Whitney and its inclusiveness is certainly welcome. Stories always get told by the winners and I'm happy to see Frankenthaler is telling the new version of paintings history.
