Actor Steve Martin has paid tribute to late artist Helen Frankenthaler, who passed away on Tuesday (27Dec11).
The Father of the Bride star took to Twitter.com to pay his respects to the painter, who died aged 83 at her home in Connecticut following a long illness.
Martin writes, "Rip Helen Frankenthaler, great abstract painter," alongside a link to a news article reporting her death.
Frankenthaler, whose career spanned six decades, was a major contributor to the history of post-war American art and was awarded the National Medal of Arts in 2001.
