New Pollock Paintings Found

This is kinda cool. I'm not a huge Pollock fan, but I like these early works. I think these thirty two works are a sort of bridge between his earlier work and his familiar splatter painting. Thirty two "new" Pollock works discovered in an attic. How cool is that?

I was the one who told him he should try splatering, pouring and dribbling. I said: "Pollock! Your work is for shit! You may as well pour the paint out of the fucking can. It'll look beter than the drek your smearing!" After he cried, he tried it. The rest, as they say, is history.

I like the New Yorker cartoon where two pidgeons are on a window ledge and one is saying to the other: "Pollock was a big influence."
