And Now, for the Critics of Pollock...

The Connoisseur Norman Rockwell
1962


Do you think Rockwell had a bad opinion of Pollock, or just a humorous side to him?

One thing I noticed is that it's a pretty good abstract, and in good illustrator's format, the main lines lead towards the figure.

Honestly, I'm not sure what others oppinions on Pollock may have been. Pollocks work speaks to me that's all I know. It makes me feel as if Pollock understood how I often feel. His work shouts out the emotions one holds inside. I don't know what others may have thought or think. I admire his work for the meaning behind it, brings it to life. I think many have found his style of painting a good way to paint because it helps express the feelings one has inside.

You raise an interesting point, Angela. I wonder if anyone else has had success (either artistically or commercially) by doing drip paintings?
It raises the questions of what influences JP produced.
I have my post on the movie almost done, but I like to post on weekdays, now.
Cheers!

Many artist's probably have been successful in doing dripping paintings. Nobody can take the fact away though that JACKSON POLLOCK started it! He brought the ability to cast aside all goings on of the day to just paint free. Although many use his techniques today they can NOT say they came up with that idea. They can say that they put emotions into their works. As many artist's do put emotions into their works. Works like that, I have a hard time putting a price on. His work is Not understood by all today. I understand it SOOO WELL that Honestly, if I had one I wouldn't sell it just for the fact of what it means to me! Jackson Pollocks go for ALOT of money too! You can NOT put a price on the emotions that Jackson had in which I can very much relate to.

A good point, there. What price emotions?
