Debate Continues on Authenticity of Jackson Pollack Paintings
In 2003, Alex Matters discovered 32 paintings in a storage locker that may be attributed to Jackson Pollack. Belonging to his deceased father, Herbert, a graphic designer and photographer who was a personal friend of Pollack for more than twenty years. The small paintings were wrapped in brown paper and enclosed was a note stating that the artist was Jackson Pollack and that they were painted from 1946-1949. The announcement in 2005 has shaken the art world. Studies have been conducted by Harvard conservationists on three of the paintings. From the analysis, it was found that some of the pigments found in the paint were not available in the U.S. until after Pollack's death. However, more research needs to be conducted to establish if these paints were available in Switzerland or Germany at the time. Matter's brother-in-law had a supply store in Switzerland where he often purchased his art supplies. The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has conducted an analysis on four other paintings. The results of the study will be presented in the first public exhibition of these paintings, to be held at the McMullen Museum of Art at Boston College. The show will open on September 1, 2007. The museum director, Nancy Netzer, says the exhibition will focus on "the state of the question, not the authenticity of the paintings."
