LEE KRASNER "EMBRACE FOR THE OLYMPICS" SCREENPRINT, 1974
It seems that in recent years, there has been a concerted effort, by scholars, dealers and curators to dismantle or reexamine the cannon in hopes of including or repositioning 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 are pleased to be offering this dynamic screenprint by Lee Krasner. In the 1970's Krasner began experimenting with hard-edged forms and cut-outs, often with of one or two brightly painted colors. This work is a prime example of this period.
This piece has special significance because it was commissioned for the 1976 Olympics in Montreal, continuing the great Olympic tradition of commissioning artists to create artwork celebrating the games.
As Krasner's paintings are selling for upwards of $2 million, her screenprints are a must have for the young collector passionate about American Abstract Expressionism.
