“Noon” by Lee Krasner

Lee Krasner was an abstract expressionistic artist who lived from 1908-1984.  Her birth name was Lena Krassner.  She lived in New York and studied at The Cooper Union and the National Academy of Design.  She was married to Jackson Pollock, another abstract painter, for roughly ten years.  Most of hers and Jackson’s paintings look like this, with splotches of paint blending together to create a mass of color rather than a shape.  I like “Noon” in particular because the colors remind me of a beach party and the short, thin strokes produce a calming effect.  Though not a fan of abstract art, I might hang this on my wall.
