Charles and Jackson Pollock Exhibition

Pollock Virtual Exhibition Tour

Pollock , Charles and Jackson on a virtual  exhibition Enjoy this 29-minute private tour of the 2021 art exhibition, Charles and Jackson Pollock, given by Dr. Philip Rylands, president of The Society of the Four Arts and co-curator of the exhibition.
Charles and Jackson studied under Regionalist painter Thomas Hart Benton at the Art Students League. Both of them were strongly influenced by Benton and both were admirers of the Mexican muralists, but while Charles adopted Benton’s American scene painting, Jackson was more interested in the symbolic and mythical content of the Mexicans.
The exhibition presents a small, even intimate selection of works revealing a Jackson Pollock little known to the general public: paintings, drawings including one of only two surviving notebooks of the 1950s (only once shown in public before), his sole surviving sculpture, virtually his entire production of prints (monotypes, etchings produced in the studio of Stanley William Hayter and silkscreens of his ‘black paintings’ created with the help of another brother, Sanford McCoy), and a pair of low four-legged, paint-spattered stools immortalized in photographs by Hans Namuth and Arnold Newman of Pollock at work in his long Island barn-studio.
Charles and Jackson Pollock is curated by Philip Rylands and Otto Hübner and organized by The Four Arts.
The duration of the exhibition has been extended through August 31
