What To Know About the Party:

Who Is Jackson Pollock?

Jackson Pollock was an American Abstract Expressionist painter and legend who became internationally famous in the late 1940s-50s for his signature style of drip painting, along with his volatile personality, drunken antics and marriage to Lee Krasner.

What is Action Painting?

The term "Action Painting" was coined by critic, Harold Rosenberg in 1952 to define the technique of Pollock and other Abstract Expressionists working from the 1940s to early 1960s, who saw the canvas as an “arena in which to act.”  Their processes involved splashing, using gestural brushstrokes and dripping paint onto canvas, rather than carefully applying it.
