Pollock or Not Pollock?

August 3, 2018 Quizzes Dr. Kale Johnson

Ever wonder if you can paint as well as Pollock? Jackson Pollock (January 28, 1912 – August 11, 1956) was an American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. He was well known for his unique style of drip painting (see Wikipedia for full details). His paintings are often messy looking and can consist of paint splattered on canvas by throwing it from a brush or other object. While he is credited with the conception of this style, it is often debated whether it was just because he was first, or because he had something uniquely special that his paintings now sell for huge prices, up to $200,000,000.
