View Wishlist

The first full length account of Lee Krasner’s colourful life.

In Gail Levin’s riveting biography, Lee Krasner emerges as a significant artist who richly deserves her place in the 20th century’s cultural lexicon. Drawing on new sources and numerous personal interviews – including with Krasner herself – Levin has created a dynamic and moving portrait of a brilliant woman, and in doing so recovers Krasner’s voice and allows us to understand how her life intersected with and informed her art. 

Gail Levin is the author of Edward Hopper: An Intimate Biography, Becoming Judy Chicago, and many other books on twentieth–century and contemporary art. She is Distinguished Professor of Art History, American Studies, and Women's Studies at the Graduate Center and Baruch College of the City University of New York.
