Jackson Pollock, 1912-1956 : at the limit of painting

Emmerling, Leonhard 1961- (author.). Pollock, Jackson 1912-1956 (artist.). Pollock, Jackson 1912-1956 Container of (work): Works. Selections. (Added Author).

Summary: HISTORY OF ART / ART & DESIGN STYLES. The rebel hero of Abstract Expressionism, Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) careened through his life like a firework across the American art landscape. Channeling ideas from sources as diverse as Picasso and Mexican surrealism, he rejected convention to develop his own way of seeing, interpreting, and expressing. Pollock's most famous works are his drip paintings, where he dripped and poured household enamel paint over the canvas with a variety of instruments, from sticks to syringes, hardened brushes to broken bits of glass. The splattered results pulsate with energy, replacing the refinement of easel and brush with something altogether more immediate, vivid, and physical. To evade the viewer's search for figurative elements in his paintings, Pollock abandoned titles and identified each work with a neutral number only.
