In last week’s class we had a brief conversation about Lee Krasner a Female Modernist Artist whom is the wife of Jackson Pollock. During class and now as well as I review the power point I’ve thought about how Lee Krasner during this time became a name, and how in the power point it was significant to the class and to our professor to mention that she is the wife of Jackson Pollock. Why couldn’t Lee Krasner just be her own modernist artist, without the association of her husband? Could she have become a name in the art world without the influence and stature of her husband? The feminist art movement at that time was so interesting and obviously female dominated that it is interesting to discuss an artist and refer to her as the wife of someone important. To me it takes the feminism out f her art, and leads me to believe that she really isn’t such a strong feminist as she portrays to be. Would she have been a significant artist without the aid of her husband? Without the dominant male influence? Many women at the time of the feminist movement were married and were famous for their art and their art alone.
