Jackson Pollock: Lavender Mist, Framed Poster

About the Artist

Jackson Pollock's mythic reputation rests largely on the artistic breakthrough of his large action paintings, made between 1947 and 1951, as well as on his dramatic life and death. Pollock's complex imagery derived from diverse sources including Navajo sand painting, Asian calligraphy, and personal revelations stemming from his psychotherapy sessions. From the 1930s to the early 1940s, Pollock's style evolved from a dark, turbulent form of regionalism to a more freely rendered abstract expressionism. During the next decade Pollock developed his monumentally influential "poured" paintings by dripping and flinging intricate layers of paint over his canvases.

Description

This is a framed reproduction of Jackson Pollock's Number 1, 1950 (Lavender Mist) (1950) from the Gallery's permanent collection. Created with black, white, russet, orange, silver, and stone-blue industrial paints, the painting radiates a mauve glow, despite containing no lavender. Though his mural-size “drip” paintings met with mixed reactions when they debuted in 1948, Pollock was considered the darling of the art world within a few years, and Lavender Mist embodies the artistic breakthrough he achieved during this time.
