Pollock and the New York School exhibition at the Vittoriano.
10 Oct-24 Feb. The Vittoriano hosts an exhibition dedicated to American Abstract Expressionist painter Jackson Pollock along with his artist peers including Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline.
The artists belonged to the Abstract Expressionist group of the New York School, an informal movement of avant-garde painters, poets, dancers and musician active in New York in the 1950s and 1960s.
The painters were driven by experimentation and anti-conformism, particularly evident in the action painting of Pollock - known as 'Jack the Dripper' - because of his revolutionary way of applying paint to canvas.
The Rome exhibition, which comprises around 50 works including Pollock's 3-m long Number 27
, opens on 10 October. For full details check Vittoriano website
