* In 1956 Time magazine referred to Pollock as 'Jack the Dripper'.
His iconic paintings stretch out with the generosity and scale of
the landscape of America's West where the artist grew up. Pollock
said that he painted 'out of his consciousness': the cathartic
dribbled paint reflected his troubled mind. This book traces
Pollock's career and discusses how his loose, individual style was
used as a political weapon in the Cold War, representing America as
the free, democratic nation. Illustrations simplify the theory and
reveal the hidden meaning behind the mesh of painted lines. Series
writer Catherine Ingram brings her extensive knowledge to the book,
while specially commissioned illustrations by New York-based
illustrator Peter Arkle vividly portray the text.
