Educated at the Cooper Union, the National Academy of Design, and Hans Hofmann’s School of Fine Arts, Krasner embraced abstract art and exhibited with the group American Abstract Artists which included Josef Albers, Willem de Kooning, David Smith, and Jackson Pollock, whom she later married. Her association with Pollock stifled her own artistic expression for a time, but soon she developed her own mature style as an Abstract Expressionist of great power and range. Blue Stone, Gold Stone and Pink Stone are three works in Krasner’s Primary Series printed in an edition of 100. Its dynamic composition reflects the gestures of the artist as she spattered and dripped tusche (greasy liquid) on the lithographic stone, leading the viewer’s eye to every corner of the sheet.
