Jackson Pollock’s Mural

March 11 - June 14, 2014
At the J. Paul Getty Museum, Getty Center

Commissioned by art collector and dealer Peggy Guggenheim for the entry to her New York City apartment in 1943, Mural by Jackson Pollock (American, 1912–1956) is now considered one of the iconic paintings of the twentieth century. Following extensive study and treatment at the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Getty Conservation Institute, this exhibition presents the newly restored work alongside findings from the Getty’s research. It explores a transitional moment in Pollock’s career, as he moved toward the experimental application of paint that would become the hallmark of his technique.
