Peeking into the Homes of Artists, Part 3:
Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner
The floor is covered with the brilliant colors and rhythmic gestures found in Jackson Pollock’s masterpieces.
The former home and studio of two of America’s foremost abstract painters, Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner, this National Historic Landmark preserves the environment that inspired them and contains evidence of their creative processes. Wearing special padded slippers, visitors can walk on the studio floor covered with the brilliant colors and rhythmic gestures found in Pollock’s masterpieces. On the studio walls, evidence of Krasner’s dynamic painting technique is still visible.
