The property where artists Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner lived in East Hampton,
NY, was deeded to the Stony Brook Foundation in 1987. The Pollock-Krasner House is
a public museum that shows the setting in which the two artists created many of their
works. The floorboards in the studio are still intact, complete with the remnants
of Pollock’s famous poured paintings.
