The exhibition of Jackson Pollock (American, 1912-1956)’s paintings features Number 2, 1949, from the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Museum of Art; Number 13A, 1948: Arabesque, from the Yale University Art Gallery; and Number 7, 1950, from New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). A specially designed plinth exposes the back of Number 2, 1949, allowing visitors to see beneath the surface of this monumental, sixteen-foot painting. The exhibition also considers Pollock’s use of the frieze format and how it affects the composition, style, and ultimately, the meaning of those works. The exhibition demonstrates the range of Pollock’s drip technique, and likewise merges the expertise of conservators and curators to shed light on Pollock’s drip-painting method, choice of unconventional materials, and his stylistic evolution. As part of the exhibition, Number. 2, 1949 was treated by the Williamstown Art Conservation Center.
