Jackson Pollock, aka “Jack the Dripper,” is one of the most famous painters of abstract expressionism. Instead of using an easel and brushes, Pollock’s unconventional technique involved laying a canvas out on the floor as he hovered over it with a paint can, manipulating the texture and shape with foreign objects. His life was ended prematurely by a car accident in 1956, just as his artwork was escalating in notoriety.
