Jackson Pollock Dripped His Way to Modern Art Stardom

Post  Cierlmeyrin on Wed Sep 21, 2011 3:10 am

Jackson Pollock’s Famous Paintings, some of which took only hours to produce, have sold for over $100 million apiece, as much as works by Old Masters, Impressionists such as van Gogh or Monet or abstract artists such as Picasso or Matisse.
Children Paintings Of course, it wasn’t what Pollock painted so much as how he applied pigment to canvases – dripping liquid paint from cans, splattering or slapping it from brushes or sticks, or squeezing it from tubes or syringes; Flower Paintings and whatever fell on the painting became part of it, be it cigarette butts, paint tube tops, pebbles, nails, buttons, tacks, coins or matches, because, as far as Pollock was concerned, there were no accidents. Pollock’s paintings were as spontaneous as a lightning bolt. Boats Paintings Then there were Pollock’s notorious troubles. When he wasn’t painting, he seemed to be drunk, and while drunk he seemed to be causing trouble, getting thrown out of bars or offending people. People Paintings Then, later in life, when he lost his muse and couldn’t paint, he started sleeping around with much younger women and then ran his car off the road and into a tree, seemingly in an act of suicide. Pollock made this spectacular exit, dying young at 44.
