"Lee Krasner: Living Colour" traces the artist's 50-year career as a pioneering figure of Abstract Expressionism, featuring nearly 100 works—from the artist's early explorations in charcoal to her later monumental, abstract paintings, such as the iconic "Umber" series. 

Unlike many of her contemporaries, Krasner refused to develop a “signature image,” which she considered to be “rigid rather than being alive.” Working in cycles, she continually sought out new means for authentic expression, even during the most tumultuous of times, which included Pollock's emotional volatility and his sudden death in a car crash in 1956. Krasner's formidable spirit is felt throughout the body of work that she created over more than five decades  in the studio—celebrated in this exhibition.

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is the final stop for the touring retrospective, which first opened in May 2019 at the Barbican Centre  in London, UK; subsequently traveled to Schrin Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, Germany; and most recently was on view at Zentrum Paul Klee  in Bern, Switzerland.
