Gallery Talk on “Jackson Pollock: The Graphic Works” at Guild Hall

August 19, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Saturday, August 19 at 12pm 

A talk With Helen Harrison, the Eugene V. and Clare E. Thaw Director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center.

Jackson Pollock is best known for his stunning abstract poured paintings from the 1950s—work which marked the high point of his artistic career. But many people may not realize that from 1943, Pollock also explored the art of printmaking quite different from his lithographs. Pollock’s intaglios from 1944 and 1945 are critical in his development and forecast his signature style in painting.The graphics in the Guild Hall exhibition include the six engravings from 1944-45, reprinted in 1964, and the six screenprints in the 1951 portfolio, reprinted in 1967. Both sets were reprinted from the original copper plates or silkscreens under the approval of Lee Krasner, Pollock’s widow and an artist in her own right.

All Museum Programming supported in part by: Crozier Fine Arts, The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust, Lorenzo and Mary Woodhouse Trust, Melville Straus Family Endowment, New York State Council on the Arts and Suffolk County,
