Jackson Pollock's life and death are the stuff that American myths are made of.Born on the plains of Wyoming, he was the "cowboy" who became a star of the sophisticated new York art world until his death in a drunken car crash in 1956 at the age of forty-four.Despite his personal torments, Pollock produced a body of work which helped forge the first great American art movement, Abstract Expressionism, and made him the first American painter to be ranked with the European masters of the twentieth century.This portrait of Jackson Pollock explores the truth and legend surrounding a painter who embodies the spirit of post-war America in his work, just as other fifties talents like Jack Kerouac, James Dean and Charlie Parker did in theirs.
