Lee Krasner


In recent years, there has been a concerted effort, by scholars, dealers, and curators to reexamine the canon of art history in hopes of including (and reevaluating) more female artists. One of the artists that has been at the forefront of this new mentality and activity is unquestionably 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. And finally she is being appraised as an important contributor to American abstraction and not simply Jackson Pollock's wife. 

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

This 1973 offset lithograph depicts Krasner’s “Rising Green”, painted in 1972. "Rising Green" is a fine example of Krasner’s work during this period when she began experimenting with hard-edged forms and cut-outs while limiting her palette to a few bright saturated colors. Krasner’s use of blunt lines and stark negative space creates a striking composition that still manages to capture the softness of the greenery depicted in this piece. 

Established in 1946, the renowned Marlborough Gallery is one of the most influential and esteemed post-war art institutions. The 1973 exhibition “Lee Krasner, Large Paintings" was Kranser’s second show at Marlborough Gallery, coming five years after her debut “Lee Krasner, Recent Paintings" in 1968.

As Krasner's paintings are selling for upwards of $2 million, her lithographs are a must-have for the young collector passionate about American Abstract Expressionism. Unlike many of her contemporaries, such as Adolph Gottlieb, Krasner created only a handful of prints during her lifetime.
