9780062017796: Lee Krasner: A Biography

Perhaps best known as the long-suffering wife of Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner is now, finally, being recognized as one of the 20th century’s modernist masters. In Lee Krasner, author Gail Levin gives us an engrossing biography of the painter—so memorably portrayed in the movie Pollack by actor Marcia Gay Harden, who won an Academy Award for her performance—a firebrand and trailblazer for women’s rights as well as an exceptional artist who led a truly fascinating life.

From the Back Cover:

Lee Krasner is best known as the artist-wife of Jackson Pollock, the renowned abstract expressionist painter. Yet in this riveting biography, the first full-length account of her life, distinguished art historian Gail Levin shows that Lee Krasner was a significant artist who deserves her place in the twentieth century's cultural lexicon and artistic pantheon.

During the Great Depression, Krasner supported herself painting murals for the WPA, was called a Trotskyite for speaking out at the Artists Union, and got arrested for demonstrating on behalf of workers' rights. Her life changed in 1945 when she began her troubled marriage with Jackson Pollock. In Lee Krasner, Levin examines how this strong woman struggled to meet the challenges of Pollock's alcoholism and infidelity, all while encouraging his art.

Lee Krasner is a dynamic, compelling, and moving portrait of a brilliant woman artist whose dramatic life is part of the cultural fabric of America.

About the Author:

Gail Levin is the author of Edward Hopper: An Intimate Biography, Becoming Judy Chicago, and many other books on twentieth-century and contemporary art. She is Distinguished Professor of Art History, American Studies, and Women's Studies at the Graduate Center and Baruch College of the City University of New York.
