Pollack – Turmoil Creates Major Legacy

Paul Jackson Pollock was born on January 28, 1912. After his early studies with Thomas Hart Benton and experimentation with the artistic styles of Picasso, Miro and Diego Rivera, Pollock created a technique that was uniquely his own: drip painting. He married his most trusted advisor and fellow artist Lee Krasner in 1945. Although Pollack had a short and difficult life ending with his accidental death in 1956, through all of the turmoil he established himself as one of America’s most influential artists in the Abstract Expressionism movement.
