My favorite works of art
Jackson Pollock had created his first " drip" painting in 1947, the product of a radical new approach to paint handling. During his lifetime, Pollock enjoyed considerable fame and notoriety, a major artist of his generation. Regarded as reclusive, he had a volatile personality, and struggled with alcoholism for most of his life. In 1945, he married the artist Lee Krasner, who became an important influence on his career and on his legacy.
