From the Margins: Lee Krasner / Norman Lewis 1945–1952
An important reexamination of two artists whose crucial participation in the Abstract Expressionist movement is often overlooked
This captivating book examines two modernist painters — Lee Krasner (1908–1984) and Norman Lewis (1909–1979) — whose important contributions to Abstract Expressionism have long been underappreciated. During their lifetimes, and still to this day, Krasner and Lewis received little acknowledgement as major participants in the mainstream Abstract Expressionist scene in New York. Rather, Krasner was mainly known as the wife of Jackson Pollock and Lewis, as an African American artist, who struggled for recognition.
Written by Norman L. Kleeblatt and Stephen Brown, with essays by Lisa Saltzman and Mia L. Bagneris.
