Living Colour – Lee Krasner
The Barbican Art Gallery, London
May 30 – September 1, 2019

Lee Krasner is a key figure in American art, whose energetic works reflect the spirit of possibility in post-war New York. “I like a canvas to breathe and be alive. Be alive is the point”.

This exhibition celebrates the work and life of Lee Krasner (1908–1984), a pioneer of Abstract Expressionism. 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.
