Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center

In this unassuming studio in East Hampton, see where two of America’s foremost abstract painters created some of their most famous works. 

Don’t let the simple, wood-shingled exterior of Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center fool you. Some of the world’s most iconic art was made within its walls. In this national historic landmark, see where artists Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner lived and worked.

In 1945, Jackson Pollock and his wife, Lee Krasner, moved from New York City to East Hampton. Both artists needed a break from city life. The house and studio, originally a fisherman’s homestead, provided a perfect setting. Overlooking Accabonac Creek in the East Hampton hamlet of Springs, the newlyweds went on to create abstract paintings inspired in part by their beautiful rural surroundings. 

The couple turned the storage barn into their studio where they created some of their most famous pieces. It was here that Pollock developed his signature poured canvases, using house paint manipulated atop canvases set on the floor. The studio floor is covered with remnants from this iconic process, making it a piece of art itself. Put on special padded slippers and walk over the same space where Pollock’s masterpieces, such as Autumn Rhythm, Convergence and Blue Poles, were created.

Pollock was killed in an automobile accident in 1956, but Krasner used the studio until she passed away in 1984. Today, see the studio exactly as she left it, complete with the colorful remainders left on the walls from her Earth Green and Night Journeys series.

Inside the Pollock-Krasner house, see the couple’s immaculately preserved furnishings and personal possessions. Browse through their library and record collection. Check out an original painting by Pollock and prints by both artists, along with varying temporary exhibits on display throughout the year.

The Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center is open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays between May and October. Purchase your entry ticket at the door and receive a complimentary audio guide or printed booklet to provide additional information for your visit.
