Description
Once best known as the long-suffering wife of Jackson Pollock, and portrayed in an Oscar-winning performance by Marcia Gay Harden in the film Pollock, Lee Krasner is finally being recognized as one of the 20th century's modernist masters. Art historian Gail Levin, who has also profiled such artists as Edward Hopper and Judy Chicago, here gives us an engrossing biography of Krasner, a firebrand and trailblazer for women's rights as well as an exceptional artist who led an original and fascinating life.

"Levin ... is now the first to tell Krasner's captivating story, writing with equal insight into her temperament, experiences, and art.... A consummate scholar, marvelously lucid writer, and gracefully responsible biographer, Levin redresses glaring omissions in the history of abstract art in this imperative portrait of a formidable artist."Booklist (starred review)

"Gail Levin's stunning new biography finally proves Krasner's relationship with Jackson Pollock was only a sliver of an enormously colorful life.... Levin's biography ensures that Lee Krasner will never again be known merely as 'Mrs. Jackson Pollock'."Minneapolis Star Tribune
