    One thought on “Jackson Pollock”

    1. I wish there were pictures of his art to go along with the story The art is so important to the history of Pollock himself The author brings in alot of the cultural and political issues of the day, which are very relevant In the end, though, Pollack, seemed self absorbed with his fame Too much of a change.

    2. Ughhh to hear about how his art was perceived by the public and art world at the time, but full of so much of the Mythology that surrounds Pollock almost to the point of sensationalism Maybe that s appropriate.

    3. A quick, easy overview of Pollock life and career New to me were details of the way his reputation with critics and academics has evolved in the years since his death A good introduction to his life and era.
