Lee Krasner, Vol. 15
Robert Carleton Hobbs
1558592830
September 1993
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
At nearly every stage of her 15-year marriage to the universally recognized Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner was quicker to respond to stylistic innovations in the art world than her husband. Pollock either didn't catch on to the art-world developments that surrounded him or incorporated changes much later than Krasner did. Some critics read Krasner's dynamic painting style as evidence of her superiority as an artist, but others saw her porousness as a problem, and Pollock's comparative insularity as one key to his uniqueness. In Lee Krasner, Robert Hobbs gracefully analyzes the many forces--of personality, education, and cultural and political milieu--that shaped Krasner's 60-year devotion to art; in the process, he elucidates the many reasons her "artistically constructed self remains provisional."

Lee Krasner was one of the central figures in twentieth century American art, but as the wife of famed abstract expressionist painter Jackson Pollack, she was often hidden in the long shadow cast by her husband. Every known example of her work is listed here--some 600 works in oil, collage, mosaic, and on paper--including its exhibition history, provenance, and title changes. Nearly every work is illustrated, and there are 267 plates in full color in this long-awaited reference on one of our most important artists, and one of the few such studies ever devoted to a female artist. Ellen Landau, a professor in the Case Western Reserve University/Cleveland Museum of Art Joint Program in Art History, is also the author of a monograph on Pollack.

Three Artists (Three Women): Modernism and the Art of Hesse, Krasner, and O'Keeffe
Anne Middleton Wagner
0520214331
February 1998
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
In this scholarly new book, Wagner (history of art, Univ. of California, Berkeley) skillfully probes and tracks how each of these important American modernists at one time coped with life as both a professional artist and wife of a more famous one. "O'Keeffe's Femininity" demonstrates how infamous she was at rendering body imagery: "to imagine an impossible union?the passionate coupling of hygiene and scatology, the body and its absence." Lee Krasner is shown painting her own way through Jackson Pollock's as well as Arshile Gorky's conventions until she eventually achieved autobiographical essays in paint and collage. Eva Hesse is optimistically identified as an innovative commentator on new sexuality, focusing on her body, but not her body alone. This gendered interpretation of three of the foremost American...


Lee and Elaine, Vol. 1

·
 
From Publishers Weekly
In this second novel by Rower (Armed Response), the artistic and social excesses of the New York School painters Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Willem de Kooning and Elaine de Kooning provide a welcome obsession for a painter in a midlife crisis. At the start of an East Hampton summer, the death of an old friend and fellow artist shocks the narrator and leads her to Green River Cemetery, where she comes upon the graves of many of the abstract expressionist painters, among them Lee Krasner and Elaine de Kooning. She begins to investigate the history of "the wives," convinced that there is a story there "about friendship and competition between women artists." As this interest stretches out over several years, it becomes more and more a way for the narrator to avoid her own failed career, her fears of aging and the...


Jackson Pollock: Interviews, Articles and Reviews

June 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This anthology surveys five decades of critical response to Jackson Pollock, bringing together essential and hard-to-find texts from newspapers, journals, and catalogues. It includes all of Pollock's statements about his art as well as interviews with his wife, painter Lee Krasner, providing firsthand testimony about his goals and methods. Reviews of Pollock's early exhibitions reveal the intense interest his work aroused even before he arrived at his famous technique of "dripping" paint. Later articles trace the growth of Pollock's myth after his death in 1956 and document the continuing debate over psychological and mythological interpretations of Pollock's work. Edited by Pepe Karmel.

Abstract Expressionism (Movements in Modern Art Series)
Deborah Bricker Balken
1854373064
May 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The term Abstract Expressionism, though rejected by some of the artists involved, has come to signify the fascinating body of work made by American artists in postwar New York, mainly between 1947 and 1953. Artists including Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Clyfford Still, Barnett Newman, Lee Krasner, and Willem de Kooning created large-scale canvases that revitalized contemporary art in America. Although inspired to some extent by the Surrealists and by European abstract painting, Abstract Expressionism was hailed as the first truly American modern art movement, and was to have enormous influence on the activities of artists in Europe and the rest of the world.

In addition to 60 color illustrations of works created by the artists of the movement, this accessible survey examines the critical response to Abstract...
