Lee Krasner, Much More than Pollock’s Wife
Six Paintings. One Concept
Lee Krasner was a fundamental painter of the Abstract Expressionism. She was part of the movement since it was born around 1940. She got married to Jackson Pollock —the most famous Abstract Expressionist— in 1945, and the brightness and emotion that the couple generated eclipsed her career. She was not given the appropriate recognition in her time, but today she is valued and praised for a substantial quality: her versatility, the way her work evolved continuously.
Krasner did not get “stuck” in a style; she took artistic risks. The artist explained that, for her art to continue being “alive”, she had to figure out each painting in itself.
