Poem by Lee Krasner
Lee Krasner is most well know for her relationship with Jackson Pollock but having trained as a serious artist (including with Hans Hofmann) she was persistently overlooked for decades. Highly self critical, including the destruction of many works that she deemed did unworthy of her high standards, her works are rare and valuable finds. Today she is considered a vital contributor to the Abstract Expressionist movement. While primarily working as a painter, at the time of the O'Hara portfolio she was experimenting with gouache on paper and clearly was at home with printmaking as we see in this superb lithograph.
