Lee Krasner: Living Colour

On sale information
The Art of Love

Discover the complicated relationships between artist couples in this captivating talk, set against the backdrop of our major exhibition Lee Krasner: Living Colour.

‘I painted before Pollock, during Pollock and after Pollock.’ Lee Krasner 

Krasner, a formidable artist in her own right, has too often been eclipsed by her marriage to Jackson Pollock, yet, their close working relationship impacted them both significantly.

Join art historian and Head of Collections for Soho House, Kate Bryan, and artist Sue Webster as they discuss the history of artist couples and the challenges and possibilities that working closely can create.
