Jackson Pollock and Household Paints

Photograph by John Griffin
 
Jackson Pollock famously used ordinary household paints to create his poured paintings. A collection of his materials and applicators--hardened brushes and basting syringes--is on display at the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in East Hampton. In 2011, the journal Physics Today discussed the special properties that made liquid house paint so attractive to Pollock.
