Pollock Tie, Untitled (Green Silver) ca. 1949
Jackson Pollock upended the conventions of traditional easel painting with his revolutionary technique of pouring commercial paint onto unstretched canvases set on the floor. Pollock's incorporation of bodily gesture and his creation of an allover, nonhierarchical form of composition had an enormous influence on the development of postwar art in the United States and elsewhere. Although he is best known for his large, mural-sized paintings, Pollock also produced many smaller paintings and drawings, such as this work from around 1949, which remarkably convey the same level of dynamism and expressive force on a reduced scale.
