COVID-19 Lockdown Museum Item 3 - Jackson Pollock's Number 1 1949
In the spring of 2017 I made a trip to Southern California to visit my daughter at college. This of course means a visit to a least of couple of the outstanding art museums in Los Angeles. On this trip we paid a visit to MOCA and amongst the exhibits was a space dedicated to the cleaning and conservation of Jackson Pollock's Number 1 from 1948.
I've always been a Pollock fan and it was extremely interesting to see the conservation process in progress. Unfortunately, independent conservator Chris Stavroudis was not on duty during our visit. MOCA has plenty of documentation about the project on their website. Click on the photo for a link to the artwork
