Thanks to a donation from Jackson Pollock’s patron Peggy Guggenheim, the newly wed couple, Pollock and Lee Krasner, were able to buy their home in East Hampton in 1947. The house, which was converted into a museum in 1988, is the setting for this exhibition (until 29 October) which takes a close look at one of Krasner best-known works, Portrait in Green (1969). The painting is the only work by the artist to have been documented as she produced it, through a series of photographs by Mark Patiky. These images, presented alongside the completed canvas, offer an intimate insight into the artist’s process and are shown alongside a collection of gouache works on paper that were produced in the same year.
