The exhibition brings together works by Charles (1902-1988), the eldest of the five Pollock brothers, and Jackson (1912-1956), the youngest. Both were students of Thomas Hart Benton and admirers of the Mexican muralists, and each evolved away from representational imagery to create his own abstract visual language.
