Jackson Pollock by Anonim Pdf

A hardback edition of the popular MoMA Artist Series, with larger reproductions of Jackson Pollock's artwork. Jackson Pollock, widely regarded as the most important painter of the second half of the twentieth century, was the first American artist to capture the public imagination. This book features eleven paintings by Pollock selected from The Museum of Modern Art's substantial collection of his work. His groundbreaking 'drip' paintings of the late 1940s and 1950s are here, along with early and late works demonstrating the fluid interaction between figuration and abstraction in his art and the direction of his painting at his untimely death. A lively essay by Carolyn Lanchner, a former curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum, accompanies each work, illuminating its significance and placing it in its historical moment in the development of modern art and in Pollock's own life.

Jackson Pollock's Mural by Yvonne Szafran,Laura Rivers,Alan Phenix,Thomas Learner,Ellen G. Landau,Steve Martin Pdf

Jackson Pollock's (1912–1956) first large-scale painting, Mural, in many ways represents the birth of Pollock, the legend. The controversial artist’s creation of this painting has been recounted in dozens of books and dramatized in the Oscar-winning film Pollock. Rumors—such as it was painted in one alcohol-fueled night and at first didn’t fit the intended space—abound. But never in doubt was that the creation of the painting was pivotal, not only for Pollock but for the Abstract Expressionists who would follow his radical conception of art —“no limits, just edges.” Mural, painted in 1943, was Pollock’s first major commission. It was made for the entrance hall of the Manhattan duplex of Peggy Guggenheim, who donated it to the University of Iowa in the 1950s where it stayed until its 2012 arrival for conservation and study at the Getty Center. This book unveils the findings of that examination, providing a more complete picture of Pollock’s process than ever before. It includes an essay by eminent Pollock scholar Ellen Landau and an introduction by comedian Steve Martin. It accompanies an exhibition of the painting on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum from March 11 through June 1, 2014.

Jackson Pollock Splashed Paint And Wasn't Sorry. by Fausto Gilberti Pdf

A clever, charmingly quirky portrayal of painter Jackson Pollock – and the first in a series of picture-book biographies of contemporary artists Jackson Pollock was unlike any other painter. Instead of sitting in front of an easel with brushes, he poured paint over canvases rolled-out across the floor, moving, splashing, and making the vivid liquid run with energy and rhythm. Pollock’s story is told here with wit and eccentricity, perfectly paired with black-line illustrations – and splatters galore. Fausto Gilberti brings movement, life, and whimsy to the true life story of one of the most important contemporary artists of our time.

Jackson Pollock by Evelyn Toynton Pdf

Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) not only put American art on the map with his famous "drip paintings," he also served as an inspiration for the character of Stanley Kowalski in Tennessee Williams's "A Streetcar Named Desire"--the role that made Marlon Brando famous. Like Brando, Pollock became an icon of rebellion in 1950s America, and the brooding, defiant persona captured in photographs of the artist contributed to his celebrity almost as much as his notorious paintings did. In the years since his death in a drunken car crash, Pollock's hold on the public imagination has only increased. He has become an enduring symbol of the tormented artist--our American van Gogh.In this highly engaging book, Evelyn Toynton examines Pollock's itinerant and poverty-stricken childhood in the West, his encounters with contemporary art in Depression-era New York, and his years in the run-down Long Island fishing village that, ironically, was transformed into a fashionable resort by his presence. Placing the artist in the context of his time, Toynton also illuminates the fierce controversies that swirled around his work and that continue to do so. Pollock's paintings captured the sense of freedom and infinite possibility unique to the American experience, and his life was both an American rags-to-riches story and a darker tale of the price paid for celebrity, American style.

Jackson Pollock by Donald Wigal Pdf

Born in 1912, in a small town in Wyoming, Jackson Pollock embodied the American dream as the country found itself confronted with the realities of a modern era replacing the fading nineteenth century. Pollock left home in search of fame and fortune in New York City. Thanks to the Federal Art Project he quickly won acclaim, and after the Second World War became the biggest art celebrity in America. For De Kooning, Pollock was the “icebreaker”. For Max Ernst and Masson, Pollock was a fellow member of the European Surrealist movement. And for Motherwell, Pollock was a legitimate candidate for the status of the Master of the American School. During the many upheavals in his life in Nez York in the 1950s and 60s, Pollock lost his bearings - success had simply come too fast and too easily. It was during this period that he turned to alcohol and disintegrated his marriage to Lee Krasner. His life ended like that of 50s film icon James Dean behind the wheel of his Oldsmobile, after a night of drinking.

Jackson Pollock by Deborah Solomon Pdf

Deborah Solomon's biography sets Jackson Pollock in his time and portrays him as a shy, often withdrawn person, full of insecurities and self-doubts, and frequently unable to express himself about his art or its meaning. Solomon interviewed two hundred people who knew Pollock and his work and she has drawn extensively on Pollock's own writings and other personal papers. She examines the artist's relationships with his family; his wife and fellow artist Lee Krasner; art patron Peggy Guggenheim; the painters Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, and many more.

Jackson Pollock by B. H. Friedman Pdf

Nowhere is the complex and destructive painter Jackson Pollock (1912–1956) revealed with more compassion and insight than in this exemplary biography. Friedman, a friend of Pollock's and active in the art world, shows him to be a brilliant man tormented by his relationship to his family; an artist who worked hard through years of poverty to achieve his controversial painting technique; the first American painter to gain an international reputation for himself and for what has been variously called Action Painting or Abstract Expressionism; and a man who struggled with alcohol and the tension between gentleness and violence.Newly illustrated with seminal Pollock paintings, this book takes the reader inside the art world of New York during the '40s and '50s, when Action Painting first emerged. Friedman reveals what it meant to Pollock to experience the invasion of his studio and of the very act of painting by the external pressures of shows, reviews, films, dealers, critics, hostile publicity; and how, despite it all, Pollock created many of the most graceful and powerful paintings ever made in America.

Biography of Jackson Pollock by Kate Kastelein Pdf

ABOUT THE BOOK It is quite possible I could do that is the most frequent statement uttered about Jackson Pollocks art work. His most famous pieces, those with large canvases splattered with paint have delighted and confounded art lovers and critics since the 1940s. Pollocks fame was largely due to his innovative way of painting. He would take a large canvas and place it on the floor of his studio. He would then walk around it, drizzling and splattering paint on it with sticks, pallet knives, or even just by pouring the paint directly onto the canvas. The resulting canvas often gave the impression of having no design or form, but this was not necessarily-or sometimes at all-the case. Many of Pollocks paintings are extremely large, some measuring as long as 18 feet. His most famous works are in his splatter paint style, and feature swirls, splashes, and splatters of paint, often in very simple colors like black, white, yellow, and red. He also created a number of works using more traditional methods, i.e. paint brush on canvas, but they still tend be uniquely abstract.

He was born in Cody, Wyoming, but later moved to Arizona and then Chico, California. Pollocks father, LeRoy was a farmer, and later worked for the US Government as a land surveyor. Pollocks mother, Stella, worked as a housekeeper and is frequently considered to have been a key figure in Pollocks childhood and adult life. Pollocks history with mental illness and social problems seems to have started early on in life following an unsteady pattern of surges and quells in behavioral problems. Growing up he was often in trouble, and expelled from two high schools, including the Manual Arts High School in Los Angeles. He did however have periods in his life where he seemed entirely free or mostly-free of deep emotional conflict. he was a prolific and productive artist. Pollock travelled with his father, and was able to experience Native American culture while doing so. He would later say that Native American art greatly influenced his own style. Eventually Pollock moved to New York City to stay with his brother, Charlie, who was already there, and to study at the Art Students League of New York. It was there that he met his mentor, Thomas Benton. CHAPTER OUTLINE Biography of Jackson Pollock + About Pollock + Background + Major Accomplishments And Awards + Personal Life + ...and much more
