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, will trace
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, will 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,
picassoinpollock.org, is now live.
