This print is one of a cache of sixty-nine screenprints (or silkscreens) found after Pollock's widow, Lee Krasner, died in 1984. Previously unknown, they are the result of experiments he made with this stencil-based printing technique between 1943 and 1944. Pollock worked briefly at a commercial silkscreen workshop in 1943 and acquired his own small printing screen there to use at home. Pollock and Krasner sometimes used screenprints like these as greeting cards.
