This richly illustrated monograph throws light on the work and life of Lee Krasner, a pioneer of Abstract Expressionism, whose importance as an artist has often been overshadowed by her marriage to Jackson Pollock. In 1984 Krasner became one of the few female artists to be given a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Acknowledging her belated recognition, she quipped: ‘I was a woman, Jewish, a widow, a damn good painter, thank you, and a little too independent.’
Lee Krasner features a selection of the artist’s most important paintings, collages and works on paper; essays by Eleanor Nairne, Katy Siegel, John Yau and Suzanne Hudson; a previously unpublished interview with her biographer, Gail Levin; and a fully illustrated chronology, offering a powerful reassessment of one of the leading figures of 20th-century American art.
