Lecture within the cycle Między figuracją a abstrakcją (Between Figuration and Abstraction) of the Art Transfer Foundation.
Jackson Pollock is the best known representative of abstract expressionism, which dominated art in the post-war period. He began, like his American colleagues, with a fascination for Picasso and Surrealism, but later devoted himself entirely to abstraction. His premature, tragic death interrupted the development of his work at a very interesting moment. It seems that the artist began to return to figuration. Whether this would fully happen, one can only guess.
