About (Profile/Biography):

Lee Krasner, a well-known American Abstract Expressionist Painter, was born in Brooklyn. American artist Lenore "Lee" Krasner became well-known for her work in abstract expressionism. She received particular acclaim for her collages. Although her success as an artist throughout her lifetime was overshadowed by her wedding to Jackson Pollock, there was a major overlap in their conceptual approaches to art. Between the two, Krasner's approach, which was influenced by artists like George Bridgman and Hugo Hofmann, was more structured, especially when depicting the human anatomy. Pollock's approach, on the other hand, was less structured and more instinctive. Each significantly influenced the other's artistic output during their time together. Krasner, a native of New York, lived most of her life in several regions of the city.

Lee Krasner Paintings:

Lee began to paint when she a youngster and has always had a strong affinity for the arts. 

Lee is currently regarded as a key abstract transitional figure who acted as a bridge between early 20th-century art and the fresh perspectives of post-World War II America. 

Lee artwork is now quite valuable. One of the select few female painters to receive a retrospective exhibition at the Modern Art Museum is Krasner.

Lee was fascinated to postmodern art in the 1960s and 1970s, and this is evident in her works from this time.

Lee Krasner Contributions:

Lee developed an interest in creating gouache paintings on paper in 1969 and gave them titles such Nature, Water, Flower, and Hieroglyphics. They looked like something out of a Rorschach test.

In 1976, Lee started creating her second episode of collage photographs, which were exhibited at the Pace Gallery in 1977 and received favorable reviews.

Lee Krasner Unknown Facts:

Krasner had always desired to be an artist. She majored in painting at Washington Ewing High School for Girls, where she attended.
