About Jackson Pollock
This colorful tote bag features the iconic abstract expressionist style of the 20th century American artist Jackson Pollock. Influenced by Hans Hofmann’s drip paintings produced during the early and mid 1940’s, Pollock’s radical drip paintings began in the late 1940’s making him an iconic figure in the New York art scene. Pollock’s works resemble the strong influence of improvisational jazz, Navajo sand paintings, African sculpture, prehistoric art, and Egyptian painting. Pollock came to New York in 1932 to study at the Art Students League under Thomas Benton, where his radical abstraction directly opposed to Benton’s figuration, while at the same time being influenced by his rhythmic figurative patterns. By the 1950’s after influencing other artists, Jackson Pollock became internationally known as a symbol for the new american painting and as an icon of post- World War II art. Pollock remains to be one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, and is considered the American embodiment of the traditional Romantic genius.
