The Deutsche Guggenheim, the most recently established and perhaps less well-know of Guggenhem museum, welcomes this wide-ranging show of the paper-based work of 20th century American painter, Jackson Pollock, including some 40 compositions drawn from collections around the world. The exhibition looks at the most important stages of Pollock's drawing, from his sketchbook studies on old masters and the early 20th century Mexican wall painters. The period from 1940 to 1950 receives special treatment as Pollock moved from a surrealistic style to the techniques which resulted in his famous abstract compositions of later years. Admission costs 4 or 3 with concessions and is free on Mondays.
