Summary
"Lee Krasner was born in Brooklyn in 1908 of Russian parents. She attended Washington Irving High School in Manhattan and the Women's Art School of Cooper Union, from which she graduated in 1929. Krasner also studied at the Art Student's League (1928), the National Academy of Design (1929-32), City College (1933), and with Hans Hofmann (1937-1940). She worked as a supervisor on the WPA Mural Project in the mid-30s and was an active member of the Artists' Union and the American Abstract group. Krasner's work was included in many group exhibitions in the 30s and 40s including American and French Paintings organized by John Graham at the McMillan gallery in 1942 and Abstract and Surrealist Art in America at the Mortimer Brandt Gallery in 1944, an exhibition based upon Harriet and Sideny Janis's book of the same title. The first solor exhibition of Krasner's work was at the Betty Parsons Gallery in 1951, and was folowed by solo exhibition at the Stable Gallery (1955), Martha Jackson Gallery (1958), Howard Wise Gallery (1960, 1962), Marlborough Gallery (1968, 1969, 1973, 1975), Pace Gallery (1977, 1979) and Robert Miller Gallery (1982, 1985, 1988, 1991, 1993)." -- about the author
