Acrylic on paper framed, featuring abstract theme artwork. Attribute Lee Krasner (American, 1908-1984). Accompanied with a letter of provenance. 22 x 26 in. (56 x 66 cm). Lee Krasner was a major figure in the American Abstract Expressionist movement and the wife of Jackson Pollock. Working in oil on canvas, ink on paper, and mixed-media collage, Krasner produced works characterized by a sensuous painterly style, her large-scales collages often formed from the artist’s own cut-up paintings and drawings. Krasner exhibited with the American Abstract Artists group, through which she met Pollock; the two became vital critics and supporters of one another, and Pollock’s influence on Krasner helped free her from formalist strictures. PROVENANCE: Private estate (South Carolina, United States)
