Lee Krasner is one of the major women artists of the 20th century and this memoir is full of firsthand material based on interviews with Krasner as well as her friends, fellow artists, gallerists, and curators.

 More than merely Jackson Pollock's widow, she is regarded as a prominent and immensely talented Abstract Expressionist who influenced the evolution of contemporary art - in particular, that made by women in the 20th and 21st centuries. Here, 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, who was Executive Director of Guild Hall in East Hampton, NY for many years, explores Lee Krasner's sphere in a world she knows well - friends, art-world luminaries, artists, and others through interviews and remembrances.
