"There are no rules. Let the picture lead you where it must go." Helen Frankenthaler poured thinned pigment directly on an unprimed canvas. This style characterized the artist's work and is reminiscent of watercolor painting. Frankenthaler's arrangement of colors and shapes often evoke the natural environment, and she frequently refers to her works as landscapes. In each work of art, she creates a unique visual space, atmosphere, and mood.

The Grenville Jewel: This stunning locket was sent from husband to wife during the English Civil War while the political climate kept them apart. Inside is a portrait of Sir Bevil Grenville – a Royalist general from Cornwall who sent this jewel containing his portrait to his wife Lady Grace Grenville between 1639 and 1643. The locket is decorated with enamelled pansies which were associated with loving thoughts at the time. Diamonds, emeralds, opals, rubies and pearls adorn its glittering exterior.
