除了他自己的艺术贡献之外，还有几个因素共同帮助杰克逊波洛克成为艺术巨头和传奇人物。他的男子气概强硬，上镜的牛仔形象与叛逆的电影明星詹姆斯·迪恩相似，而且他在一次酒精狂欢的高速单车撞车中死亡，他的情妇和另一个人作为乘客他的故事的浪漫。他的妻子李克拉斯纳（Lee Krasner）的死亡情况以及对他的财产的巧妙处理，为他的工作和整个艺术市场提供了动力。在他的一生中，波洛克经常隐居，符合美国在第二次世界大战后所钦佩的唯一艺术家和英雄的神话。他的形象随着纽约艺术商业和文化的发展而增长。波洛克于1929年以17岁的身份来到纽约市，正当现代艺术博物馆开幕，艺术界蓬勃发展。 1943年，艺术收藏家/社交名媛佩吉古根海姆（Peggy Guggenheim）通过委托他为她的曼哈顿联排别墅的门厅画一幅壁画，给了他很大的突破。她签约给他每月150美元这样做，让他完全专注于绘画。作品“壁画”将波洛克推向了艺术世界的最前沿。这是他有史以来最大的画作，他第一次使用房屋涂料，虽然仍然使用刷子，但试图用油漆涂抹。它引起了着名艺术评论家克莱门特格林伯格的注意，他后来说，“我看了一眼壁画，我知道杰克逊是这个国家最伟大的画家。”此后，格林伯格和古根海姆成为波洛克的朋友，拥护者和推动者。一些人甚至已经证实，中央情报局正在使用抽象表现主义作为冷战武器，秘密推广和资助世界各地的运动和展览，以展示美国的知识分子自由主义和文化力量，而不是意识形态的一致性和刚性。俄罗斯共产主义。
In addition to his own artistic contributions, there are several factors that help Jackson Pollock become an art giant and legend. His masculinity is tough, the cowboy image on the mirror is similar to the rebellious movie star James Dean, and he died in a high-speed bicycle crash in an alcoholic carnival, his mistress and another person as a passenger his story romance. The death of his wife, Lee Krasner, and the clever handling of his property provided the impetus for his work and the entire art market. Throughout his life, Pollock often retired, in line with the myth of the only artist and hero that the United States admired after the Second World War. His image grew with the development of art business and culture in New York. Pollock arrived in New York City as a 17-year-old in 1929. Just as the Museum of Modern Art opened, the art world thrived. In 1943, art collector/social socialite Peggy Guggenheim gave him a big breakthrough by commissioning him to paint a mural for the entrance hall of her Manhattan townhouse. She signed up to give him $150 a month to do so, allowing him to focus entirely on painting. The work “Mural” pushes Pollock to the forefront of the art world. This is the biggest painting of his history. He used house paint for the first time. Although he still uses brushes, he tries to paint it. It caught the attention of the famous art critic Clement Greenberg, who later said, “I took a look at the mural, I know that Jackson is the greatest painter in the country.” Since then, Greenberg and Guggenheim Mu became a friend, supporter and promoter of Pollock. Some have even confirmed that the CIA is using abstract expressionism as a cold war weapon to secretly promote and fund sports and exhibitions around the world to demonstrate intellectual liberalism and cultural power in the United States, rather than the consistency and rigidity of ideology. .
