Mask by Jackson Pollock

Mask was painted by Jackson Pollock in 1941. Jackson Pollock, was an influential American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. This is an oil painting painted on a canvas. It is located at the Museum of Modern Art and it was painted in the style of Expressionism. I found that it resembled the art of Picasso which is why I choose this painting.  Pollock makes it his own with that twinkle in the mask’s eye and the rich amount of clutter of the color that surrounds the object. There happens to be a lot of black paint around the structure of the face. Besides that, I think the bright, white face sticks out from the more richer colors in the background.
