First generation Abstract Expressionist Lee Krasner trained at the Art Student's League in New York and studied under Hans Hofmann from 1937-1940. According to writer and curator Jeffrey Grove, "Krasner's peregrination through the currents of artistic practice, bridging the post-war to post-modernist eras, defined a singular and improbable model, one often inconsonant with prevailing artistic currents. Today her works emerge as clear and forceful statements by an artist captured in a confrontational and fruitful dialogue with her own past, the history of modernism, and the frustrations of the present, dynamics clearly and eloquently expressed in her later works."
