Reviews - What do customers think about Jackson Pollock (Portfolio (Taschen))?
Pollock x 14 Jul 24, 2008
I don't claim to understand Jackson Pollock's paintings but this book of 14 prints on a paper size that is about 90% A3 size is great value for money.
The earliest prints from the 1930's onwards show the influence of many artists, including Picasso. His later work is apparently abstract and surreal at first viewing. However with repeated viewings you do start to see things in the paintings that perhaps were intended, or perhaps not.
The prints are: The Moon-Woman Male and female The Moon-Woman Cuts the Circle Composition with Pouring II Gothic Night Mist Croaking Movement Full fathom Five Untitled (1948/49) Number 15 Untitled (1949) Untitled (1949) Lavender Mist: Number 1 Convergence: Number 10
Each print has details about it on the reverse. The prints are on good quality card and I'm looking forward to turning my living room into a Pollock gallery for a while!
A good portfolio Feb 10, 2007
This portfolio contains many of his major works, and the pictures are high quality and glossy. My only complaint is that the ink is a little too glossy. It includes works from early to late, highlighting the progression of his artistic style.
