  • A Visit to the Pollock-Krasner Studio…

    Visiting the Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) and Lee Krasner (1908-1984) house and studio in the woods of Springs, in East Hampton, was a very special and touching experience. I have always admired Pollock’s and Krasner’s work, but experiencing the place where so much of their art was created, was so very moving… The couple moved there from New York trying to find a “healing place” from Pollock’s struggle with depression and alcoholism. In this small studio, full of beautiful light, in this secluded area of East Hampton, some of Pollock’s best Abstract Expressionist pieces were created. After his death, Krasener continued her amazing work here as well. To walk over the paint-splattered studio floor where Pollock’s footprints are still visible, surrounded by the silence and stillness of the woods… sooo beautifully inspiring and emotional!!
    Will post about the residence in a future post…
