Lee Krasner, ‘Free Space Blue’, 1975, Caviar20

It seems that in recent years, there has been a concerted effort, by scholars, dealers and curators to dismantle the cannon in hopes of including or repositioning/reexamining more female artists and designers.

One of the artists that has been at the forefront of this new mentality is Lee Krasner (1908-1984).

How and why has she been marginalized from the narrative surrounding the development and importance of Abstract Expressionism is finally being addressed.

We highly recommend the Gail Levin's biography of Lee Krasner

And if you are in Colorado, don't miss the Denver Art Museum's "Women of Abstract Expressionism" which runs until September 25, 2016.

We are pleased to be offering this dynamic screenprint by Lee Krasner. This work is a prime example of her preferred forms; Matisse-inspired dense shapes surrounded by more gestural forms and outlines.

As Krasner's paintings are selling for upwards of $2 million, her fine screenprints are a must have for the young collector passionate about American Abstract Expressionism.

About Lee Krasner

Lee Krasner was a major figure in the American Abstract Expressionist movement and the wife of Jackson Pollock. Working in oil on canvas, ink on paper, and mixed-media collage, Krasner produced works characterized by a sensuous painterly style, her large-scales collages often formed from the artist’s own cut-up paintings and drawings. Krasner exhibited with the American Abstract Artists group, through which she met Pollock; the two became vital critics and supporters of one another, and Pollock’s influence on Krasner helped free her from formalist strictures. “Painting…in which the inner and the outer man are inseparable, transcends technique, transcends subject and moves into the realm of the inevitable,” she said. Krasner studied under Hans Hofmann, and considered Henri Matisse and Piet Mondrian to be lifelong influences on her practice.
