    One thought on “Jackson Pollock: 1912-1956”

    1. The text is fairly cursory, but it'd make a nice introduction to Pollock. I bought the book for the reproductions, though. The print quality is good, but the colors seem to be a bit saturated. I don't really trust the color accuracy after having seen Gothic at "Picasso to Warhol" exhibit. The reproduction of this painting has made the greens more green and the reds more red. For the price, I would recommend this for anybody just interested in having a book of Pollock works. There are many large [...]

    2. Boeiend werk over het zeer bewogen leven van de Amerikaanse abstract-expressionistische kunstenaar Jackson Pollock (1912-1956).Bij 'n tweede grote expositie deden sommige critici zijn werk af als 'gegratineerde macaroni', maar ik vind zijn 'dripping- & pouring-paintings' schitterend!!! Zou de oceaan over moeten om een aantal werken een keertje in 't echt te kunnen zien en dat zit er jammer genoeg echt niet in.Mural(1943)- Blue(1943)- Summertime(1948) - Gray and Red (1948) - Number 32 (1950) [...]

    3. Interesting, albeit brief, run-through of Pollock's life & work, opinionated in the way that art history & criticism always is, i.e. much to be argued with. Like someone else has said here, it's a good start. Plates are nice, though (necessarily) far too small.

    4. Here's what I say about Jackson Pollock's art: if you look at his (best) work and either get it, or understand that you should get it, then you can be my friend. If you think it's just a bunch I splattered paint, you're no friend of mine.

    5. Un poquito de Pollock para disfrutar el domingo: jamás se va a sentir lo mismo leyendo un libro sobre él que parándose frente a su obra en el MoMA pero descubrí detalles nuevos.
