From the Margins: Lee Krasner and Norman Lewis, 1945-1952
This exhibition brings together two New York painters, Lee Krasner and Norman Lewis, whose works offer unique and compelling approaches to Abstract Expressionism. Born one year apart, Krasner and Lewis shared similar family situations and came of age in the economic, social, and historic complexities of the 1930s. Through a selection of significant paintings by both artists, this presentation offers a revealing parallel view of two important abstract painters, whose work was often overlooked by critics of their time.
