About Jackson Pollock
Born on January 28, 1912, as the youngest of five sons in Cody, Wyoming. Paul Jackson Pollock’s Westerner identity would play a significant role in the development of his artistic style, often viewed by his admirers as uniquely American, self-reliant and independent. After his abusive alcoholic father Leroy Pollock left the family, his brother Charles became like a father figure to Jackson and also awakened his interest in the arts. In 1930, both Charles and Jackson moved to New York City and enrolled at the Art Students League, studying under Thomas Hart Benton with whom they became close with. The artistic experimentation of Pollock’s paintings reflects the strong influence of the Surrealist psychic automatism present in the works of artists like Joan Miró and Salvador Dalí. Pollock’s Action Painting was also motivated by a 1939 Picasso exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, where other artists like Willem de Kooning were inspired to develop their own signature independent styles like Picasso did with Cubism.
