Martha Holmes/TIME & LIFE Pictures
Lee Krasner and Jackson Pollock
Shortly after the two New York City artists married in 1945, they moved to the small farm pictured here in Springs, N.Y., just outside of East Hampton, long before that Long Island town became famous as the summer playground of wealthy Manhattanites. With a down payment loaned to them by art dealer Peggy Guggenheim, they bought the land and moved into the house that would be Pollock’s residence for the last decade of his life. Pollock converted a barn just outside the house into a studio, where he was to create his most famous works.
