Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Forum, 4th Floor
Distinguished art historian Dr. Gail Levin discusses and gives a PowerPoint illustrated lecture on her new book, Lee Krasner: A Biography—the first full-length account of Lee Krasner’s influential and colorful life. Levin presents Krasner as an independent, resourceful woman and an artist of uncompromising talent and remarkable energy. Debunking previous portrayals that depict Krasner solely as the long-suffering wife of Jackson Pollock, Levin allows her to emerge as a significant artist in her own right, a painter who deserves a place in the twentieth century’s cultural history and artistic pantheon. A book signing will immediately follow the presentation. Free with Museum admission.
