Lee Krasner standing on a ladder in front of The Gate (1959) before it was completed, Springs, July or August 1959. Photograph by Halley Erskine. Lee Krasner Papers, c.1905-1984. Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution.

Lee Krasner is a key figure in American art, whose energetic work reflects the spirit of possibility in post-war New York. In 2019, her work was presented in the first major presentation of her work in Europe in 50 years, Lee Krasner: Living Colour, at the Barbican Art Gallery in London. This exhibition celebrates the work and life of Lee Krasner (1908–1984), a pioneer of Abstract Expressionism. Lee Krasner: Living Colour tells the story of a formidable artist, whose importance has too often been eclipsed by her marriage to Jackson Pollock.
