THE FATHERS OF MODERN ART
Panayiotis Kalorkoti says about this work:
"Jackson Pollock is deliberately different from the rest of the series in its attempt to convey rapid movement, Action Painting in action yet paradoxically frozen on the surface of my print. The appurtenances of the painter's craft are significant - no longer palettes and easels but here great tins of paint, opened and ready for the rapid gesticulation which makes the artist appear as a kind of athlete. He is isolated on a narrow platform, almost overwhelmed on all sides by the evidence of his activity, though here it is accorded less than unquestioning respect: only the horizontal area of Summertime actually reproduces a Pollock painting, the other panels being my own free variations on totally abstract theme."
