Hofmann taught her. She met Pollock, whom she ended up marrying, by going to his studio and asking to see his work when she didn’t recognise his name on a list of fellow-exhibitors. Mondrian, one of her influences, was met as a fellow-member of a New York abstractionist group. She illustrated O’Hara’s verse, while Motherwell translated from French for her. Both Hartigan (whom Krasner recommended for exhibitions) and Frankenthaler (a weekend visitor) became close friends; de Kooning, already a friend, became a Long Island neighbour (though Krasner and Elaine de Kooning never became close).
