Picasso in Pollock

July 29 - October 31, 2021

From the late 1930s through the end of his career, Pollock responded to many aspects of Picasso's oeuvre. The exhibition, a hybrid of actual works and replicas, traces those influences in key examples, including the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center's Pollock painting, Untitled (Composition with Red Arc and Horses), ca. 1938, which contains a motif adapted from Picasso's 1937 mural,   Guernica. A dedicated website with an essay by the distinguished scholar Pepe Karmel and a 3D tour of the installation, hosted by Artland, supplement the exhibition, which is supported by funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, the Singer Foundation, and a research grant from the Terra Foundation for American Art. 

The exhibition website is   picassoinpollock.org

Picsso and Pollock

Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) is regarded as the undisputed leader of the Abstract Expressionist movement. In 1945, Pollock married fellow artist Lee Krasner (1908-1984) and moved from New York City to Long Island’s East End. With a loan from art dealer Peggy Guggenheim, they purchased a small homestead on one and a quarter acres overlooking Accabonac Creek in The Springs, near East Hampton.
