During the summer months of the mid-twentieth century, the epicenter of the New York School shifted from the Cedar Tavern, in Greenwich Village, to the South Fork of Long Island. In the exhibition “Painters of the East End,” the Kasmin gallery focusses on eleven women from that community. (“Seed No. 10,” a 1969 gouache by Lee Krasner, is pictured here.) Some of the artists are well established (Helen Frankenthaler, Joan Mitchell); others deserve heightened attention (Betty Parsons, better known as a gallerist).
