Robert Hobbs' book on Lee Krasner is an excellent introduction to the life and work of this important artist. My first experience of Lee Krasner came through the film "Pollock," a biographical drama about Krasner's husband and fellow artist, Jackson Pollock. I was so impressed by Marcia Gay Harden's passionate portrayal of Krasner in the film that I sought out more information about Krasner, and found Hobbs' book. This book is filled with full-color reproductions of many of Krasner's paintings.

I asked Krasner if Pollock had saved any books or exhibition catalogues related to Kandinsky. I also wanted to know whether there were any catalogues from the Museum of Non-Objective Painting in New York, where he had briefly worked in 1943. I had the opportunity to collaborate with Robert Hobbs on a show that would be called Abstract Expressionism: The Formative Years. I was eager to see Krasner in the show along with her male colleagues.

At first Pollock refused, but then after a week back in New York, he felt overwhelmed by the city’s heat and noise. He abruptly declared they should move to Long Island year-round.

Lee Krasner never took the easy way out — not in life, not in art. Brought up in a poor Brooklyn neighborhood and originally named Lena Krasner by her immigrant parents, she decided early on to create a new name and a new identity for herself. Later, as one of the few female painters in the aggressively male circle of Abstract Expressionists, she had to contend not only with the critics' skepticism about their new way of making art but also with the skepticism that greeted any woman's attempts to become a professional artist. Many of Krasner's male colleagues — including her husband, Jackson Pollock — developed a unique "signature" style that identified them throughout their careers. Krasner, however, experimented with one style after another, from her early geometric abstractions (created while she was one of Hans Hofmann's most talented students), through her large-scale organic images of mid-career, to the hard-edge compositions of her late years. Certain elements recur throughout — most notably, her distinctive sense of color, her affinity for swelling forms inspired by nature, and her fearlessness in experimenting with new techniques. Krasner's unwillingness to stick to one style, her readiness to put her career aside to focus on Pollock's, and her feuds with some of the period's most powerful critics all reduced her visibility in the art world. She has been the subject of exhibition catalogs, but this is the first monograph devoted to her work, and it brings to light all the intriguing complexities of her approach to making art. Dr. Robert Hobbs skillfully explores the twists and turns of her career, offering new information and insight about one of the most intriguing painters of the postwar era. About the Modern Masters series: With informative, enjoyable texts and over 100 illustrations — approximately 48 in full color — this innovative series offers a fresh look at the most creative and influential artists of the postwar era. The authors are highly respected art historians and critics chosen for their ability to think clearly and write well. Each handsomely designed volume presents a thorough survey of the artist's life and work, as well as statements by the artist, an illustrated chapter on technique, a chronology, lists of exhibitions and public collections, an annotated bibliography, and an index. Every art lover, from the casual museumgoer to the serious student, teacher, critic, or curator, will be eager to collect these Modern Masters. And with such a low price, they can afford to collect them all.

This inexpensive book was a pleasant surprise.
Some of the images are breakthrough, and show Krasner to be a major artist
in her own right.

This is a very good book. It contains many plates of Krasner's work, including many colored plates. The biographical texts covers information about Krasner's work and is interesting and informative.

Frankly speaking it is a great review of that artistic period during that time. It so happens Lee Krasner was in the midst of it and the mega-references of who she dealt with, artists, artists group, movements, cliques and the politics in the art "business" is superior. That alone is worth the price of admission. It also demonstrates her great involvement in Jackson Pollock's guano droppings not that I want to denigrate his art because each artist must do his/her thing so to speak but seagull droppings are just what they are.
Dancing Lion
One of the worst books I have ever bought. It isn't worthwhile an art book with most of the works in black and White. Don't expend your money in this horrible book

Robert Hobbs' book on Lee Krasner is an excellent introduction to the life and work of this important artist.

This book is filled with full-color reproductions of many of Krasner's paintings. She brought something truly special to the abstract expressionist movement. Her work seems to evoke both the technological energy of an urban environment, as well as primal biological power.
The book also has many wonderful photographs of Krasner at many stages in her life. In his text, Hobbs discusses such subjects as the influence of Krasner's Russian Jewish heritage upon her work. This is a visually striking and thought-provoking book. My suggestion? Read the book, and see the movie "Pollock."

Lee Krasner was probably one of the most underrated artists of her generation. She met her future husband, Jackson Pollock, in the early 40's and helped him advance his career. She knew some well-known art collectors such as Peggy Guggenheim and was able to connect he husband with them. Although Pollock died prematurely, thrown from his car which overturned and landed on one of his passengers (he was totally drunk at the time) in August of 1956, she then proceeded to use up some of the large rolls of canvas in the little shed at the back of her house where Pollock worked. The images in this book are very well done with excellent, realistic color.
