As a young woman growing up in Brooklyn, Lee Krasner always knew that she wanted to be an artist. Inspired by the opening of MoMA in 1929, Krasner joined the Hans Hofmann School of Fine Arts and became a member of the American Abstract Artists where she met and later married Jackson Pollock. With the financial assistance of Peggy Guggenheim, the Pollocks moved to Long Island where Krasner worked in small makeshift spaces within the house, while Pollock worked in the larger converted barn. It wasn’t until after Pollock’s early and untimely death that Krasner reclaimed her artistic recognition and began to produce work in tune with the contemporary Art Expressionists of the fifties and sixties.
