University Libraries Presents : Art in Focus with Ruth Appelhof

Ruth Appelhof
Executive Director Emerita, Guild Hall of East Hampton

Angry, outrageous, defiant, and courageous are just some of the words that describe Lee Krasner, the subject of Ruth’s very personal memoir inspired by her 1974 summer with the artist in East Hampton. Based on weeks of interviews with Krasner, as well as friends, art-world luminaries, artists, and others, Ruth opens a window into the artist’s private world and illuminates the remarkable work she produced for over six decades.
