Jackson Pollock Abstract Painting. East Hampton New York 54. Size: 19 x 15 inches. This painting is being sold in the manner and style of the artist. It does not have COA. Pollock was widely noticed for his technique of pouring or splashing liquid household paint onto a horizontal surface (drip technique), enabling him to view and paint his canvases from all angles. It was also called -action painting-, since he used the force of his whole body to paint, often in a frenetic dancing style. This extreme form of abstraction divided the critics: some praised the immediacy and fluency of the creation, while others derided the random effects. In 2016, Pollock's painting titled Number 17A was reported to have fetched the US $200 million in a private purchase.
