Cerise Sky, like other works by Gretchen Albrecht of the early to mid-1970s, is closely related to American colour field painting. There is a particularly strong connection with the work of Helen Frankenthaler, whose paintings of the 1960s often include similar bands of colour. Many of Albrecht’s works have titles that evoke skies, horizons, and light, but are without any literal depiction.
