Gallery Talk: Revealing the Person Behind the Pen


Just as works of art can convey something personal about an artist, so can an artist’s handwriting be decoded to reveal details about their emotions, their biography, and their relationships. Jenny Parsons, Assistant Curator, shares stories of emotional struggle captured by letters from artists like Henry Ossawa Tanner, who had to overcome racism, and Lee Krasner, who penned a poignant last letter to her estranged husband, Jackson Pollock, just days before his tragic death.
