Kunstmuseum Basel explores Jackson Pollock 's figurative paintings

Kunstmuseum Basel explores a lesser-known aspect of the legendary Abstract Expressionist’s oeuvre: Jackson Pollock 's figurative paintings.
Pollock’s figurative period came after his drip paintings, in fact, which the artist created between 1947-50, and this large exhibition seeks to explore this side of his work extensively. Although some drip paintings are featured in this exhibition the aim of “The Figurative Pollock” is to cast his body of work in a different light.

 
The Jackson Pollock Exhibition that includes works from the 30s, 40s, and 50s, explores Pollock’s figurative work up until his death in 1956, aged just 44 and not only adds another perspective to his oeuvre but also ask questions about how his work might have progressed had he lived longer.
 
You can see "The Figurative Pollock" at Kunstmuseum Basel until January 22, 2017.
