The Pollock-Krasner Study Center, located inside the Stony Brook Southampton Library is part archive and library.  Together they promote the study and interpretation of modern art in America, particularly on the East End of Long Island.

The Pollock-Krasner Study Center in Southampton, was established to promote scholarship in 20th century American art, the Study Center’s 2,000+ volume art reference library focuses on modern American art and its international context, with special attention to the world-renowned eastern Long Island artists’ community.

The research collections include the archives of the Pollock and Krasner catalogues raisonné; photographs by Hans Namuth, Martha Holmes, Maurice Berezov, Mark Patiky and others; and Pollock- and Krasner-related documents and ephemera.

An oral history collection of audio and video tapes includes interviews with Pollock and Krasner, their family, friends and colleagues; lectures and panel discussions; television and radio programs; and documentaries and feature films about artists that are available for public and scholarly auditing/viewing.
