About Jackson Pollock Mug MoMA – Number 31, 1950 (1950)
This beautiful Jackson Pollock Mug MoMA features the 20th-century American Abstract Expressionist artist’s work Number 31, 1950 (1950). Currently on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Pollock’s work “Number 31, 1950” evidence his iconic drip painting method and allover compositions. Produced like most of his paintings during his notorious “drip period”, the painting registers the movements of the artist as he laid the canvas on the floor and dripped paint over it. Jackson Pollock’s “Action Painting” which takes influence from improvisational Jazz, makes it impossible for the viewer to divorce the artist from the work itself. Commenting on the artist’s relationship to his work and regarding his artistic style, Jackson Pollock says, “On the floor, I am more at ease. I feel nearer, more a part of the painting since this way I can walk around it, work from the four sides and literally be in the painting.” Pollock’s work Number 31 may also be suggestive of primal instincts, the fast pace of life in modern cities, or the infinite flickering forms of the Cosmos.
