Unpublished. Pollock dries dishes after Krasner washes them in the kitchen of their farmhouse. Krasner, a talented abstract painter in her own right, put her career on the back burner during their decade together in the Long Island house in order to support her husband’s career. After his death, she began painting in the barn that had been his studio. By the time she died in 1984, at age 76, she was finally recognized for her own work and not just as Mrs. Jackson Pollock. Today, the farmhouse and barn studio comprise a museum devoted to the study of the married painters’ working lives.
