Join ArtTable for an after-hours gallery tour of Lee Krasner: The Edge of Color. Geometric Abstractions, 1948–53 at Kasmin, in association with the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. Eric Gleason, Executive Director of Kasmin, will provide an introduction and answer questions about the works on view and their context with Krasner’s oeuvre. The conversation will be followed by refreshments generously provided by the Pollock Krasner Foundation.

Through the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Kasmin has represented Lee Krasner’s work since 2016. Lee Krasner: The Edge of Color. Geometric Abstractions, 1948–53 is Kasmin’s fourth solo presentation of her work. It is the first exhibition to focus on this under-examined period of the artist’s work, which laid the groundwork for several major series of paintings Krasner completed later in her career. Drawing on formative connections with peers in the American Abstract Artists group as well as Piet Mondrian, Krasner’s work in the late forties and early fifties attracted early critical praise. Constrasting rectilinear forms, painted in somber tones with varying thicknesses of brushwork, sometimes appear on repainted canvases. Highlights of this presentation of Krasner’s work include the only two extant paintings from her first solo exhibition, reunited for the first time; Number 3 (Untitled) (1951), on loan from the Museum of Modern Art, and Number 2 (1951), on view in New York for the first time in over 70 years.
