Lee Krasner was one of the central figures in twentieth century American art, but as the wife of famed abstract expressionist painter Jackson Pollack, she was often hidden in the long shadow cast by her husband. Every known example of her work is listed here--some 600 works in oil, collage, mosaic, and on paper--including its exhibition history, provenance, and title changes. Nearly every work is illustrated, and there are 267 plates in full color in this long-awaited reference on one of our most important artists, and one of the few such studies ever devoted to a female artist. Ellen Landau, a professor in the Case Western Reserve University/Cleveland Museum of Art Joint Program in Art History, is also the author of a monograph on Pollack.
