Not printed on this postcard:
Jackson Pollock (1912 – 1956) was an American painter and a
major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. He was well known for his
unique style of drip painting.
During his lifetime, Pollock enjoyed considerable fame and
notoriety; he was a major artist of his generation. Regarded as reclusive, he
had a volatile personality, and struggled with alcoholism for most of his life.
Pollock died at the age of 44 in an alcohol-related
single-car accident when he was driving. In December 1956, four months after
his death, Pollock was given a memorial retrospective exhibition at the Museum
of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City. A larger, more comprehensive exhibition
of his work was held there in 1967. In 1998 and 1999, his work was honored with
large-scale retrospective exhibitions at MoMA and at The Tate in London
