Jackson Pollock Mural – Philadelphia PA

Description

“Before he developed his famous drip method of painting — a technique in which the canvas is placed on the floor and splashed with paint — Pollock worked for the WPA’s Federal Art Project from 1938 to 1942. He created Male and Female, one of his earliest paintings, in 1942. Now in the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the painting is an excellent example of Pollock’s early abstract expressionism, characterized by vibrant color and texture.”
