in the Art Gallery

Glenn Steigelman. Pollock: M-36 PhotographyStarting in February 2013, two paintings by the legendary American artist couple Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner will be on display in the Jewish Historical Museum's Art Gallery.

From the 1940s onward, Pollock was a central figure in the development of Abstract Expressionism. He is famous for his drip paintings, in which the paint almost seems to be dripping off the canvas. For many years, his reputation overshadowed that of his wife, but after his premature death she forged an Abstract Expressionist style of her own.

The two paintings, Pollock's Untitled/Greetings and Krasner's Dark Easter, are part of the Triton Collection.
