Reply Alfredo Romanos on January 14, 2013 at 6:13 am Do you have any idea what were Jackson Pollock’s reason or inspiration in this artwork? Reply Leslie Parke on January 14, 2013 at 11:55 am I have always felt that the use of the poles was influenced by having worked on the piece with Barnett Newman. There is a great Pollock biography by Naifeh and Smith. I am sure they discuss it in detail, I just haven’t read that part yet. 🙂 Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
