Witness Two Complete Sets of Rare Prints by Jackson Pollock

Which were made and gifted to his brother Sanford.

New York’s Barbara Mathes Gallery is currently showing two rare complete sets of prints made by the iconic Jackson Pollock.

Known the world over for his large-scale jazz splattered canvases, “Jackson Pollock: The Experimental Works on Paper” present the seldom seen silkscreens and engravings the artist created with his brother, Sanford, between the 1940s and ’50s. Pollock’s printmaking days began a decade earlier through the Works Progress Administration, which later manifested in prints he produced at Atelier 17, a renowned print studio that became his haven after relocating from Europe during WWII.

Upon this body of work, one begins to detect Pollock’s interest in Surrealism and figuration — two motifs that began abstract and then which he experimented further into the mark marking we now remember him for. “Even though they were made over half a century ago, the works feel contemporary and fresh,” said Barbara Mathes.

For more abstract works, Mark Rothko and Hans Hartung have a rare show at Perrotin Paris.
