The artwork is ink on paper and sized at 60cm wide by 48cm long, approximately. In truth, when working in this truly abstact manner, one can easily argue about what is top and bottom, left and right of the overall piece. The item is listed on the MoMA website as having come from The Joan and Lester Avnet Fund which suggests that private donations were used to purchase this piece. That institution have collected up a good number of Pollock's work which understandably holds a prominent part within their overall collection and there is a good variety of his paintings, drawings, screenprints, etchings and lithographs within that.

Pollock was someone who loved to experiment throughout his career and there are plenty of examples of this from all manner of different mediums. In the case of this ink drawing, it might seem a fairly simple process of blowing ink around some paper but actually this was his way of trying out ideas that could potentially then be used on a much larger scale and some recent exhibitions of his work have attempted to draw connections between his work in different mediums in just this way. There are also some publications that go beyond just his paintings, but not an awful lot and that is why most only know him as a painter on larger canvases.

This significant example of Pollock's experimental work can be found in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, which itself is located in New York City, USA. It continues to be regarded as one of the most important modern art galleries in all the world and its collection can comfortably rival anything found across the globe. It is not just the size that is impressive, but also the quality of the collection that will shock those knowledgeable about art from across the 20th century. Many of your favourite artists will likely be featured here and the large selection is rotated on a regular basis in order to allow the public to see as much of it as possible. Vincent van Gogh's The Starry Night is probably the most recognisable piece, particularly amongst the more occasional art follower, but there are also other notable pieces to enjoy here such as Henri Matisse's The Dance, The Bather by Paul Cezanne and also I and the Village by Marc Chagall.
