"Alchemy"

Jackson Pollock - Enamel - 114 x 195 cm - 1947

Today, “Alchemy” rests in the Guggenheim Museum of New York City. This is one of Pollock’s earliest poured paintings where he used sand, pebbles, broken wood sticks and fibers. He used his famous technique, also referred to as ‘drip painting’, for the first time. He would lay the painting on the floor and walk around the paintings dripping wet paint on the canvas with a brush. It was kept in Penny Guggenheim’s house in Venice where it gathered dust and pollutants. In Florence, the Opificio delle Pietre Dure carried out a restored of this painting. Many critics reported that a nineteen-colour palette was discovered, meaning many new details could be gathered post-restoration. Critics would further add that Pollock’s paintings levy credibility to the art of improvisation where no line would simply denote a recognizable shape or form. Pollock’s ‘Alchemy’, from afar, creates an engulfing atmosphere. His lines would somehow chart the artist’s physical motion. The painting was titled “Alchemy” not by Pollock but by his neighbours, Ralph Manheim and his wife.
