Instead of standing at an easel and dabbing at a palette, Jackson Pollock laid his canvases on the floor and dripped and splashed paint from tubs onto the horizontal surfaces. Enjoy the results of his radical technique, along with a selection of artworks by fellow Abstract Expressionists

Controlled or chaotic? What do you think of Jackson Pollock’s radical approach to painting?
