The Work Of Lee Krasner Will Grace The 2019 Hamptons International Film Festival Poster

authorStaff Writer on Jul 15, 2019

On July 15, the Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) announced that the poster art for the 2019 edition will be Lee Krasner’s “Vernal Yellow” from her Solstice Series (1980, oil, collage on canvas, 150 x 178. Ludwig Collection). This painting, which uses cut-out fragments of figurative charcoal from the 1930s, as well as non-representational lithographs, was exhibited in 1980 at the Pace Gallery in New York. A legend of the 20th century abstract expressionism movement and one of the artist pioneers who moved to Springs in East Hampton with her artist husband, Jackson Pollock, Krasner, whose work spanned more than 60 years, died in 1984. Currently, the Barbican in London is exhibiting the first solo retrospective of her work in Europe in over 50 years, and her work is included in a group show called “Painters of the East End” exhibiting at Kasmin in New York City this summer.

The HIFF poster will debut later this summer.

“Celebrating local artists each year by commissioning or choosing their art for our official festival poster has been a hallmark of the Hamptons Film Festival since the very first year in 1993,” said HIFF’s executive director Anne Chaisson. “In looking at the array of talented artists who have donated their work— including Julian Schnabel, Eric Fischl, David Salle, Cindy Sherman, Bruce Weber, Bryan Hunt, Barbara Kruger, and John Alexander—we felt there was one grande dame whose work must be a part of this legacy: Lee Krasner.”

Additional information on HIFF’s summer programming, including the 2019 SummerDocs series, the year-round Now Showing series, and outdoor screenings in Southampton, can be found at hamptonsfilmfest.org. The 27th annual Hamptons International Film Festival will take place over Columbus Day weekend, October 10 to 14.
