I remember being in New York and all my friends would be talking about Jackson Pollack. As much as I appreciate his work and it’s place in history I was more interested in Lee Krasner.

“ She put up with a lot. Put up with her husband’s temper, put up with the critical and institutional disregard; put up, too, with Job’s comforters who could not accept that she wanted to be both Mrs. Pollock and a great artist. “
