Like Frida Kahlo, Lee Krasner painted in the shadow of her more notorious husband. Only recently, in the wake of the Kahlo phenomenon of the 1980s, have artists such as Susan Rothenberg and Nancy Rubin begun to acquire critical status independent of their husbands (the artists Bruce Nauman and Chris Burden, respectively).
Dr. Robert Hobbs is the curator and author of the exhibitions catalogue on Lee Krasners work. His books include: Milton Avery, Edward Hopper, and Human Right/Human Wrongs: Art and Social Change.
