Autumn Rhythm

For a Language Arts project we had to choose a specific painting by a famous artist. The painting is called Autumn Rhythm made by the abstract artist Jackson Pollock. Abstract paintings are kind of wild and disjointed, more like a random idea than a sophisticated painting.

It is an abstract splatter painting featuring white, black, and beige. This painting is also described as a drip painting.Jackson Pollock made his first drip painting in 1947, but this one was made in the October of 1950.

Jackson Pollock says “Painting is a state of being. … Painting is self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is”.  Look at the Autumn Rhythm painting and think about what this says about Jackson Pollock’s character.  The painting is very chaotic and complex.
