1.0 out of 5 stars Not the best!, 27 July 2010
This review is from: Jackson Pollock (Painters & sculptors) (Hardcover)
Ok its a big book so it should really go into alot of deph about Jackson Pollock, Ive read the 1st 2 chapters of the book at the minute and Jackson Pollock has hardly been mentioned! The 1st chapter goes on about a film star and how that relates to Pollock and the second chapter is about a artist Pollock studied under. Im doing a A-level personal investigation on Pollock so I bought this book after seeing it in the Tate. I understand that the artist Pollock studied under was revelant to the way Jackson painted but a whole chapter on it is uneccersary, the chapter can be somed up by saying Benton was a big influence on the way Pollock painted and the way he thought. That took me a sentence its took the writer 20 pages. If I wanted to know about a movie star or another painter I would of bought their biographys. Hoping to get to atleast some information about Pollocks drip paintings soon! I would say buy a differnt book that just looks at Pollock not every other tom dick an harry that compares to Pollock or affected his life!

Ok read the whole book now, basically its a waste of bloody money! £25 and all it tells you is who hes like who influenced him, it seems every person alive at the time and before influenced him, If I was alive at the time no doubt I would have influenced him to, Very little on his most famous paintings (Drip) it basically tells you how they got their name. I would recomment the DVD "Pollock" its so much better than this book.
