It's hard to imagine Jackson Pollock mingling with the royalty-collecting creative set that has made the Hamptons its haunt in recent decades. Thanks to the preservation efforts of the Stony Brook Foundation, however, it's remarkably easy to imagine him painting here. Several miles outside East Hampton's flashy center, the farmhouse that Pollock shared with the artist Lee Krasner, his wife, sits within view of a gentle bend in the Accabonac Creek; a few steps away, inside the barn where he worked, jumbles of pencils, paint tubes, and stubs of chalk are piled in old cigar boxes. Pollock famously put his canvases on the floor, and his studio floor, more than a half-century after his death in 1956, is a colorful palimpsest of drips and swirls, some of them recognizable parts of his paintings One and Autumn Rhythm. The walls are decorated with photos of the artist at work; in the house, which looks as though Krasner (who died in 1984) only just vacated it, twice-a-year changing exhibitions are devoted to 20th-century American art.—Darrell Hartman

Open Thursdays through Saturdays 11 am to 5 pm, June through August; by appointment only Thursdays through Saturdays 11 am to 4 pm, September, October, and May.
