Heroic Art Ideas

Abstract/Abstraction: Pollock, de Kooning and American Art, 1940-1976,
is open at The Jewish Museum from May 4th through September 21st, 2008. The famous action
painters were chronicled, commended and enshrined by the art critics Clement Greenberg and Harold Rosenberg. The way Peter Schjeldahl has it in the current issue of The New Yorker, the real action figures may have been Greenberg and Rosenberg. See what you think.

Coming soon to The Colorist:
The Jackson Pollock Researcher. My hits on the subject of JP are so numerous, I will serve humanity by posting the catch all, end-all collection of Pollock links.
