Footage of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's landmark exhibition New York Painting and Sculpture 1940-1970 supplement the film."--Container
Jackson Pollock : meaning and significance by Claude Cernuschi( Book )

7 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This concise study of Jackson Pollock provides a reliable survey of his life and work and an understanding of his paintings--their origins, meanings, and influence. Unlike other books on Pollock that deal extensively with his life or with formal analysis of his works, Cernuschi's is broadly interpretive, discussing and explaining concerns and meanings crucial to an understanding of Pollock's paintings. The first part of the book surveys Pollock's life and work with particular attention to the artist's intentions and the interpretation of abstraction. The second part deals with the issues raised by Pollock's art above and beyond his intentions and how these issues intersect with the work of his contemporaries and with other intellectual currents. The final chapter discusses Pollock's influence and the importance of criticism in shaping this influence. It also deals with the problems of defining modernism and postmodernism. Thoughtful and accessible, Cernuschi's study explains the complexity and meaning of Pollock's art for anyone interested in twentieth-century art and the pivotal position of Jackson Pollock in art since 1945. There are notes, a selected bibliography, and an index

Pollock matters( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pollock Matters explores, for the first time, the personal and artistic interrelationship between American Abstract Expressionist painter Jackson Pollock and noted Swiss-born photographer and graphic designer Herbert Matter. Featuring visual and documentary evidence in over 100 illustrations, this book demonstrates a critically important chain of influence between these two creative individuals not considered in previous studies of their respective careers. The book reveals the crucial role that Herbert Matters' technical innovations played in Pollock's radical artistic conception of "energy made visible." Also presented, with scientific analyses of their paints, are a previously unknown body of small drip paintings labeled by Herbert Matter as "Jackson experimental (gift + purchase).""--Jacket

Benton, Pollock, and the politics of modernism : from regionalism to abstract expressionism by Erika Doss( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this acclaimed revisionist study, Doss chronicles a historic cultural change in American art from the dominance of regionalism in the 1930s to abstract expressionism in the 1940s. She centers her study on Thomas Hart Benton and Jackson Pollock, Benton's foremost student in the early thirties, charting Pollock's early imitation of Benton's style before his radical move to abstraction. By situating painting within the evolving sociopolitical and cultural context of the Depression and the Cold War, Doss explains the reasons for this change and casts light on its significance for contemporary culture."--Jacket
