Jackson Pollock's use of the drip technique established him as one of the most influential painters of the 20th century. His experiments in style led to a freedom in the abstract expressionist movement that has been unparalleled since. This program explores the turbulent life and work of this controversial figure. After studying formally with artist Thomas Hart Benton, Pollock began to break free of the academic form. His interests in rhythm and unusual sequence can be traced to painters El Greco and Diego Rivera. In the late '40s, Pollock introduced the drips, smears, and circular motions that were to cement his reputation. His later career, though distinguished, was also filled with emotional turmoil and sorrow. Pollock died in a car accident at the age of 44, but his legacy as one of the first celebrity modernists lives on. ~ Sarah Ing, All Movie Guide
