It was also called ‘action painting’, since he used the force of his whole body to paint, often in a frenetic dancing style.

This is an ok book but not what I expected and it certainly dose not do justice to Jackson Pollock. I am a huge Pollock fan and did not learn anything I didn't already know abot him from this book. The prints are ok but nothing special I was disappointed and will not ever buy another book in this series. Live and learn.

American artist Jackson Pollock lived a sometimes troubled and ultimately tragic life, despite his success in popularizing revolutionary methods of creating art. Clare Oliver's contribution to Scholastic's "Artists In Their Time" series does not sugar-coat or contradict the reality of that life, one of frequent reclusion and alcohol addiction but also containing periods of both failure and success. It also does its best to make the abstract expressionist movement understandable and accessible to young readers without passing any sort of judgment on its merit. Instead, the reader is given a clear picture of the place Pollock's innovations held in the history of art. Background information on the era in which Pollock lived and worked is helpful, but not intrusive. Illustrations are excellent.
