Item description for Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner (Pegasus Library) by Ines Janet Engelmann...
This dual portrait examines the art and lives of these talented artists and their productive, yet tempestuous relationship.
For more than a decade Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner devoted their lives to each other, serving in turn as muse, critic, companion, lover, friend, and alter ego. Their romance was stormy--their raucous arguments are the stuff of legend--and their talents were prodigious. Filling the pages of this book are examples of the contributions both artists made to the world of modern art. Readers will learn how Pollock and Krasner's artistry evolved and how they influenced each other's success. Recent developments, such as a revealing biopic and the art world's designation of Pollock as the most expensive artist in the world, bring their portrait fully up to date. While the author acknowledges history's sensationalization of their lives, it is the paintings themselves--revolutionary, innovative, and daring--that tell the most compelling story.
