How Jackson Pollock Changed Painting Forever

In this episode of Masterworks: Expert Voices, renowned art historian David Anfam explores the radical genius of Jackson Pollock, whose pouring and dripping technique redefined what the world understood painting to be. Filmed on location at the extraordinary Pollock-Krasner House in East Hampton New York, we see the studio—and paint-splattered floor—where Pollock created his most celebrated works. "Number 32, 1949” will be offered as an important highlight of Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Evening Auction on 16 May 2018.
