Jackson Pollock: Centre George Pompidou

£20.00

Product description

this is the catalogue of a major retrospective of the work of Jackson Pollock, held at the Centre George Pompidou, Paris from 21 January 1982 to 10 May 1982. It contains over 30 shorts essays on Pollock and his work (in French) by a range of contributors, accompanied by a series of colour reproductions of pieces that featured in the exhibition. The Centre Pompidou at the time described the exhibition as follows:

Cette exposition est consacrée à Jackson Pollock, héros de la peinture aux Etats-Unis, après la Deuxième Guerre mondiale. Il s’agit de sa première rétrospective en France depuis 20 ans.

Pollock disait : « Quand je suis dans mon tableau, je ne suis pas conscient de ce que je fais. C’est seulement après une espèce de « prise de connaissance » que je vois ce que j’ai voulu faire. Je n’ai pas peur d’effectuer des changements, de détruire l’image, parce qu’un tableau a sa vie propre. J’essaie de la laisser émerger. C’est seulement quand je perds le contact avec le tableau que le résultat est chaotique. Autrement il y a harmonie totale, échange facile, et le tableau est réussi. » Cette exposition est réalisée avec le concours notamment du Musée d’art moderne de New York, du Metropolitan Museum de New York et de la National Gallery de Washington.

Cover slightly bent and frayed.
