Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) is regarded as the undisputed leader of the Abstract Expressionist
movement. In 1945, he married fellow artist Lee Krasner (1908-1984) and moved from New York City to
Long Island’s East End. With a loan from art dealer Peggy Guggenheim, they purchased a small
homestead on one and a quarter acres overlooking Accabonac Creek in The Springs, near East Hampton.
The preservation and development of this unique site has been undertaken by the Stony Brook Foundation, Inc., a non-profit affiliate of Stony Brook University, one of four university centers of the State University of New York.
