About Jackson Pollock
Jackson Pollock’s identity as a cowboy from the West, went along with his rebellious personality once he stepped into the New York art scene, where fellow artists and admirers saw Pollock as representing American self-reliance and independence. After studying at the Art Students League in New York under Thomas Benton, Pollock’s abstract paintings and arabesques strongly contrasted and rebelled against the figurative patterns of Benton. By the 1950’s Pollock became an internationally known symbol for the new American generation of artists, and as the American expression of the traditional Romantic artistic genius.
