Jackson Pollock. Untitled. (c. 1938–41)

Jackson Pollock Untitled (c. 1938–41)

  • Not on view

In this tightly packed composition, two hooded figures emerge from an indeterminate space: one has a bowed head, while the other's hands are raised above his or her face, in a posture of sorrow or horror. Pollock's sinuous, rhythmically interlocking figures bear the influence of the Mexican muralist José Clemente Orozco, whose work he studied intensively during these years.
