Last chance! Jackson Pollock: A Collection Survey, 1934–1954 closes Sunday. This painting, titled Free Form, is very likely Pollock’s first “drip” painting. The exhibition explores how the artist’s signature style developed over several decades.

Jackson Pollock: A Collection Survey, 1934–1954, featuring over 50 works, opens today. The exhibition presents a concise overview of the relentless experimentation and emphasis on process that was at the heart of Pollock’s creativity through rare and little-known engravings, lithographs, screenprints, and drawings, shown alongside iconic paintings like One: Number 31, 1950 (1950).
