Description: JACKSON POLLOCK
Parsons Gallery Poster.

Offset lithograph printed in black on cream wove paper, 1951. 435x558 mm; 17 1/8x22 inches (sheet), full margins. Printed by Acme Press, New York. A very good impression of this scarce poster.

By 1950, Pollock (1912-1956) was lionized by many, including the gallerist Betty Parsons and art critic Clement Greenberg, as the leader of the Abstract Expressionists. An exhibition in the same year at the Betty Parsons Gallery proved such: featuring his renowned "drip" paintings Autumn Rhytmn and One, now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art, New York, respectively. But in 1951, Parsons exhibited Pollock's newest work, a series of paintings devoid of color, completed exclusively in black enamel on untreated canvas. His seeming turn from abstract to figurative and "drip" painting to hands-on drawing baffled many in the art world and to some signaled his decline. Pollock reproduced designs for six of the black enamel paintings in screenprint to coincide with the exhibition. O'Connor/Thaw P 26.
