... may you rest in peace ... and thank you!
Okay, so I do take selfies ... but this is with my camera and I don't have a stick and I am on my own.
Don't be shocked. This is Charles Pollock. Both of them.
I was excited to see and amazed to visit the Charles and Jackson Pollock retrospection at the Guggenheim.
If you don't know much about Charles Pollock, look him up. Jackson of course has all the fame, was it because he died young?
as for charles..... his style was originally was nothing like his brother's, (indeed they had bang up fights about painting --- jackson always felt inferior and wanted to make his mummy proud) but after life magazine asked 'Is he the greatest living painter in the United States' it was almost an inevitability that big bro would follow in his little bro's style (albeit clunkily) and of course that jackson wouldn't live for long (because its better for investors that you are a dead artist than a messy live one...)
I agree re. Krasner's influence. Charles was also a calligrapher and published at least one writing manual that was on view at the Guggenheim. Very interesting and widely disciplined artist. x g
Fabulous, I am so pleased that at last we shall meet and you will love the Pencils workshop. You managed to rearrange your diary, I am flattered.
Off to bed
But what's wrong with me . .in the Charles Pollock painting I see a man with a rifle?? . . .
