Even though Jackson Pollock's drip paintings have an air of freedom and spontaneity, the American painter arrived at this style only after a long and sometimes painstaking apprenticeship as a figurative artist. Spanning the 1930s-50s, the works here show the influence of Picasso, surrealism, and even the Mexican muralists, but the bold colors and irrepressible energy of the compositions mark them as distinctly Pollock. Essays on this phase in Pollock's career are accompanied by more than 100 color reproductions, which trace his progress from untaught primitivist to dashing abstract expressionist.
