Product Description:
Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko: Icons of Abstract Expressionism Video (VHS/DVD). The power of color. The power of freedom. The power of an aesthetic coming into its own in post-war America. Section one of this program explores the work of the rebel painter dubbed "Jack the Dripper" by Time magazine and launched into the American imagination by Life. Archival photos and film clips of Pollock in action provide a compelling glimpse of an artistic vision that defined its own space between art and chaos. Section two traces the career of the dissident modernist born Marcus Rothkowitz, from obscurity to celebrity. Joseph Solman-89-year-old co-founder of "The Ten"-and art historian Dore Ashton shed light on the works of an artist for whom success was both a triumph and a defeat. (23 minutes.) Art History, Art and Photography. 1999.
