Patrons private view: ‘Lee Krasner Living Colour’ at the Barbican
Join us for a private view of this exhibition, which celebrates the work and life of Lee Krasner, a pioneer of Abstract Expressionism.
Lee Krasner (1908–1984) is a key figure in the history of American art, a creator of energetic works that reflect the spirit of possibility in post-war New York. In the first major presentation of her work in Europe for more than 50 years, Lee Krasner Living Colour tells the story of a formidable artist whose importance has too often been eclipsed by her marriage to Jackson Pollock.
Explore Krasner’s spirit for invention – from striking early self-portraits to her much-acclaimed Little Image paintings from the 1940s, to collages comprised of torn-up earlier works, to some of her most impressive large-scale abstract paintings. At this private view of the exhibition, explore nearly 100 works, many presented for the first time in the UK.
