Jackson Pollock (American)
Born 1912, in Cody, WY — Died 1956, in East Hampton, NY
Jackson Pollock developed one of the most radical abstract styles in the history of modern art by detaching line from color, redefining the categories of drawing and painting, and finding new means to describe pictorial space. He is the most well known artist of the uniquely American Abstract Expressionist movement.
With many of his paintings Pollock began with a linear framework of diluted black paint that in many areas soaked through the unprimed canvas. Over this he applied more skeins of paint in various colors - lines thick and thin, light and dark, straight and curved, horizontal and vertical. In each painting he maintained a balance between control and chance. Their coloring and sense of ground and space are sometimes strongly evocative of nature.
Jackson Pollock artwork is essential to the world’s best contemporary art museum collections.
