"Summertime" is the alternate title of Jackson Pollock's work, also known as "Number 9A". This painting was created in 1948 and is considered one of Pollock's major works of the period. "Summertime" is a large canvas measuring 5.55 meters by 0.85 meters, created using the enamel painting technique on canvas. It is characterized by the use of bright colors and thick, sinuous lines typical of Pollock's style. The work also features densely covered areas of paint, as well as spaces left blank, creating an interesting visual contrast. As with most of Pollock's works, "Summertime, Number 9A" is considered a gestural abstract painting, created by projecting paint onto the canvas using a stick or brush. This technique allowed Pollock to create interesting texture and movement effects, as well as an impression of spontaneity and dynamism in his work.
This work is part of the collection of the Tate Gallery in London.
Abstract expressionism is an artistic movement that emerged in the United States in the 1940s. It is characterized by the use of abstract geometric forms and bright colors to express emotions and ideas rather than realistic forms. Artists of abstract expressionism often used free brush techniques and layers of paint to create intense and expressive works. The most famous artists of this movement are Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, and Willem de Kooning. In addition to abstract geometric forms and bright colors, abstract expressionism is also characterized by the use of textures and rhythms to create a sense of movement in the work. Artists often worked on large canvases, using projection and dripping methods to create works with a great deal of energy and freedom of expression. The movement also had a significant influence on other forms of art such as sculpture, photography, and graphic arts. Abstract expressionism was also an international movement, with important artists in Europe and Latin America, although it is mainly associated with the United States. Finally, it is an artistic movement that marked the history of art by its freedom of expression, personal approach and search for emotion through abstract form. It also had an impact on architecture, interior design and fashion.
Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) was an American artist known for his innovative use of spray paint and dripping, a technique of letting paint drip onto the canvas. Born in Cody, Wyoming, Pollock grew up in a family of artists. He studied art at the Art Students League in New York and was heavily influenced by abstract expressionism and the surrealists. Pollock became famous in the 1950s for his dripping paintings, which were featured in several important exhibitions, including at the Betty Parsons Gallery. His works are characterized by their dynamism and movement and were considered a new form of abstract painting. Pollock is also known for his eccentric lifestyle and substance abuse problems, which eventually contributed to his premature death in a car accident in 1956. His painting has continued to be celebrated and is considered one of the most important contributions to American art of the 20th century.
