520 8  Lee Krasner is one of the major women artists of the 20th 
       century. This memoir is full of first hand material based 
       on interviews with Krasner and with her friends, fellow 
       artists, gallerists, and curators. Often seen in her role 
       as Pollock's companion and then widow, Krasner made 
       important contributions to the development of American 
       Abstract Expressionism. Angry, outrageous, defiant, and 
       courageous are some of the words that describe the 
       American Abstract Expressionist artist Lee Krasner (1908-
       1984) - the subject of this very personal memoir inspired 
       by Ruth Appelhof's 1974 summer with her in East Hampton, 
       Long Island. Best remembered by many as Jackson Pollock's 
       widow, she is regarded more by 'art-world insiders' as the
       producer of a major body of work that influenced the 
       evolution of contemporary art - in particular, that made 
       by women in the 20th and 21st centuries. As a scholar and 
       a friend, Appelhof re-examines Krasner's contributions in 
       light of the intellectual and emotional experiences that 
       she so candidly shared with her in weeks of interviews. In
       addition, Appelhof explores Lee Krasner's relationships 
       with others - friends, art-world luminaries, artists, and 
       other 'summer sitters' allowed into her private sanctuary 
       - through interviews. Those recollections will offer a 
       window into the artist's intense and idiosyncratic 
       personal life as well as into her contributions through 
       the groundbreaking work she produced over the course of 
       more than six decades.
