A Closer Look: Jackson Pollock


In honor of my trip this weekend to New York, enjoy one of that city’s most famous (and largest!) paintings. Autumn Rhythm (No. 30) hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  It measures over 17 feet long, and was painted by Jackson Pollock on unstretched canvas on his floor.  Make sure to see this cultural treasure the next time you’re in New York.  The Met has a ” pay what you wish ” policy every day, which means you can see it for next to nothing, though it’s worth over $100 million.
