Born in Wyoming in 1912, Jackson Pollock became one of the most notorious artists that America ever produced. He developed a technique in which he would fix his canvas to the floor, drip and splash paint onto it, then use a variety of objects to manipulate the paint. With these innovative paintings, he became the front-runner of the Abstract Expressionist movement. Pollock's art is intense, thought-provoking, and subject to deeply personal interpretation, which explains why it has remained vital and fresh in spite of changing tastes.
