The Guggenheim Museum was a wonderful visit. I especially liked the abstract nature of the museum’s art. Jackson Pollock was an American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. He is known for his unusual style of drip painting. He was one of the most well-known artists of his generation. He was regarded as a recluse and even was considered dangerous because of his violent personality He struggled with drinking for most of his life. He was introduced to using liquid pain in a workshop in New York. His most famous paintings were made during the “drip period” between 1947 and 1950. Pollock’s work after 1951 was darker in color, including a collection painted in black on unprimed canvases.
