It may be summer, but we can’t let this fabulous retrospective go without a visit. A much praised exhibition of this under-appreciated abstract American artist, Lee Krasner. If you are free on 18th July to join us for a wonderful visit to the Barbican with an introduction to the exhibition from the curator Eleanor Nairne, please RSVP now.
This exhibition celebrates the work and life of Lee Krasner (1908–1984), a pioneer of Abstract Expressionism and a Key figure in American Art whose energetic work reflects the spirit of possibility in post-war New York. 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.
Discover Krasner’s spirit for invention – from striking early self-portraits to her acclaimed ‘Little Image’ paintings from the 1940s, from collages comprised of torn-up earlier work to a selection of her most impressive large-scale abstract paintings. Explore nearly 100 works, many of which are being presented for the first time in the UK.
The event will proceed if we get a minimum of 8 RSVPs. RSVP now to RSVP@UKFriendsof NMWA.org
