An important example of the fusion of primitivism and modernism that characterized Pollock's art in the first half of the 1940s, this drawing reveals the wide range of his sources, from the masklike figures, mythic animals, and pictographs of primitive art to the imagery and style of Joan Miró, Paul Klee, and Picasso. Peggy Guggenheim played a vital role in fostering Pollock's career. This sheet was included in his first solo exhibition at her New York gallery, Art of This Century, in November 1943.
