New York: Betty Parsons Gallery, 1951. Poster, printed both sides in black on buff laid paper. Folded in sixths. 43.3 x 56 cm / 17 x 22 in. (oversquare). Some signs of aging at edges; very small loss of paper at top right corner not affecting text or image. The folds are all whole and with no rubbing. In an essay by Jerome Weeks describing the Pollock retrospective at the Dallas Museum of Art in 1915, he writes of the new works, "just black enamel on raw canvas… [with] hints of faces and figures – precisely the kind of traditional imagery he’d rejected." He continues, "The show was a disaster. Later, Parson reportedly sold a single painting — for half-price." Still, wouldn't you have liked to be walking to the gallery that afternoon at 3:55 p.m., shivering, no doubt? An accompanying catalogue is available from various sellers for $250-$350, should the buyer of this poster want one. Item #100665

Price: $4,000.00
