Jackson Pollock's Mural at the Getty

Commissioned by art collector and dealer Peggy Guggenheim for the entry to her New York City apartment in 1943, Muralby Jackson Pollock (American, 1912–1956) is considered one of the iconic paintings of the twentieth century. Now in the collection of the University of Iowa Museum of Art, it represents a transitional moment in Pollock's career, as he moved toward an experimental application of paint. Following extensive study and treatment at the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Getty Conservation Institute, this exhibition presents the newly conserved work alongside findings from the Getty's research.
