"Abstract Expressionist painter Lee Krasner (1908-1984) was the only critically recognized woman artist among the founders of the New York school of painting after World War II. Although her historical importance was understood at an early date, the significance of her work - and her position as an essential figure in postwar American art - has been appreciated only in recent decades." "Unlike her male colleagues, who viewed painting as a primal expression of the self, Krasner saw her art as an open-ended exploration. Her complex and original works were dense with intellectual and cultural suggestion, incorporating human and foliate forms, allusions to myth and ancient script, and deliberate ambiguity." "This lavishly illustrated book, which accompanies a major traveling exhibition of Krasner's paintings, brings new insight to her remarkable achievements. Art historian Robert Hobbs takes a fresh look at her work, examining its forms and iconography to reveal the impressive originality and complexity of her creation. Beginning with Krasner's experiences at art school in the 1930s, and continuing through fifty years of her creative work, Hobbs traces the artist's development as she gradually came to terms with a maturing self. Drawing on a variety of sources, including in-depth interviews with Krasner and her friends, Hobbs reveals Krasner as one of the most remarkable figures in postwar art."--Jacket

"This exhibition brings together two New York painters whose works offer unique and compelling approaches to abstraction. Born one year apart, Lee Krasner (1908-84) and Norman Lewis (1909-79) shared similar family situations and came of age in the economic, social, and historic complexities of the 1930s. They formed their creative identities in the artistic and cultural ferment of New York City that was to catapult it to the center of the art world after World War II. Lee Krasner was born in Brooklyn to a Russian Jewish immigrant family. She studied at the Cooper Union and the National Academy of Design. From 1934 through 1943 she supervised a section of the mural division of the Federal Art Project of the Works Progress Administration. Krasner married the painter Jackson Pollock in 1945. Norman Lewis' parents were immigrants from Bermuda. His family lived on Lenox Avenue in Harlem. He studied drawing and commercial design in high school before joining the merchant marine and sailing throughout the Caribbean and South America. In the early 1930s Lewis worked with Augusta Savage, the founder and director of the Savage Studio of Arts and Crafts in Harlem. Like Krasner, he was a beneficiary of the public-works programs of the Depression years, teaching art under the auspices of the Federal Art Project. Krasner and Lewis reached their mature styles during the 1940s and 1950s. Their works of these years suggest intriguing parallels. Both painters developed many of the signature elements of Abstract Expressionism - a rejection of realist representation; a decentered, all-over approach to the picture plane; spontaneous, gestural brushwork; and a free use of non-naturalistic color. Both reveled in the sensual pleasures of design. A key aspect of their experimental method was the use of line - loose and organic or formal and gridlike. Both artists also drew upon sources with personal meanings: ancient and nonwestern art, contemporary music, forms of writing, references to urban life. The parallel viewing of two innovative mid-century painters offers insights into both their artistic achievements and this transformative era in America."--Jewish Museum website
