Description

"Jackson and Lee: What Was Really Cooking in the House and Studio"

In 1945, Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner, two of the foremost abstract expressionist painters, married and moved from Greenwich Village to the rural hamlet of Springs on eastern Long Island. There, in a rustic 19th century farmhouse and unheated barn, they achieved their creative breakthroughs and painted the masterpieces that now hang in museums around the world. Harrison’s talk will show how their lives and their art were shaped by this transition from the urban art world to country living, and how their property, a National Historic Landmark, continues to inspire contemporary artists.

Helen A. Harrison, the Eugene V. and Clare E. Thaw Director of the Jackson Pollock-Lee Krasner House and Study Center, is a former New York Times art critic and NPR arts commentator. Her articles, essays, and reviews have appeared in many scholarly and popular publications, and she's the author of several books, including Hamptons Bohemia: Two Centuries of Artists and Writers on the Beach (with Constance Ayers Denne) and monographs on Jackson Pollock and Larry Rivers.

Presented in affiliation with Fairfield University Art Museum and the Art History program of the Visual and Performing Arts Department.

Please note this event will be taking place in the Dolan School of Business Event Hall adjacent to the Quick Center.
