The king of the action painters, Jackson Pollock was to art in the 1940s what Andy Warhol was to art in the 1960s. Pollock's life was blighted by alcohol problems, and his death in a car crash in 1956 was put down to alcohol.

Product Description

The exhibition No Limits, Just Edges: Jackson Pollock's Works on Paper will feature a compelling group of approximately seventy-five artworks drawn from the holdings of institutions and private collections in the United States and abroad. While Pollock has been comprehensively investigated in recent international shows, a focused exhibition examining his drawing medium has not been organized since 1980. It is the exhibition's aim to re-examine the artist's practice as a draughtsman by considering his works on paper as an essential component in his transformation of the traditional figurative line into a non-figurative graphic expression. The exhibition will be accompanied by this fully illustrated catalogue. It includes a reassessment of Pollock's work as a draughtsman written by Dr David Anfam, a noted Abstract Expressionist scholar. Susan Davidson contributes a text that focuses on Pollock's early professional relationship with patron Peggy Guggenheim and the artist's engagement with the exiled Surrealists in New York in the 1940s. It also features a technical analysis on Pollock's working methods.
