I’ll give you one guess…
It’s a Jackson Pollock
Paul Jackson Pollock was an American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. He was widely noticed for his technique of pouring or splashing liquid household paint onto a horizontal surface, enabling him to view and paint his canvases from all angles.
It was also called ‘action painting’, since he used the force of his whole body to paint, often in a frenetic dancing style. This extreme form of abstraction divided the critics: some praised the immediacy of the creation, while others derided the random effects.
No. 5, 1948, pictured above, was sold in America, on May 22nd, 2006, to a Hollywood entertainment mogul; David Geffen, for $140 million. That was a new mark for the highest ever price for a painting at the time.
No. 5 was done on an 8′ × 4′ sheet of fiberboard, with thick amounts of brown and yellow paint drizzled on top of it, forming a nest-like appearance, or the classic “drip”.
