The Life of Jackson Pollock

January 28, 1912-August 11, 1956

In October 1945, Pollock married fellow artist Lee Krasner. Lee Krasner had also worked at the WPA Federal Art Project and she was also an abstract painter.

Sometime during the 1940's Pollock observed Indian Sand Painting.= This changed his method of painting. He began putting his canvas on the floor and used tools such as sticks, hardened brushes, and basting syringes. He stated this made him feel more a part of the painting.

194o

From 1947 to 1950, Pollock continued to use his "drip painting" technique. It brought him considerable fame.

At the height of his popularity, Pollock abandoned his drip painting technique all together.

This is Scent

After abandoning the drip technique, Pollock began painting with much darker colors including black and often used unprimed canvases. He later returned to including color which was part of his final two paintings in 1955, Scent and Search.
