Lee Krasner & her husband

Although they started as a dynamic artistic duo, by the end of Jackson Pollock’s life, they had grown to a gruesome twosome.

Lee Krasner on her painting: “I will always be Mrs. Jackson Pollock -that’s a matter of fact - but I painted before Pollock, during Pollock, after Pollock.”

Pollock on Krasner’s painting: “She’s fooling around, kind of an offshoot of me, and I wish she’d stop.”
