About Convergence Number 10, 1952

Convergence: Number 10, 1952 is a painting by Jackson Pollock, created in the aftermath of World War II during the rise of abstract expressionism. Measuring 241.9 x 399.1 cm, it is considered one of Pollock’s masterworks and must be seen in person to appreciate its grandeur.

The painting is a collage of colors splattered on canvas in what has become known as drip painting, a technique that Pollock developed and for which he is most famous. Convergence features different shades meticulously layered upon each other, creating shapes and lines that evoke emotions and attack the eye. Interestingly, Pollock began working on this painting in black and white but added color to salvage it.

Convergence can be found at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY. According to Pollock himself, each age finds its own technique for artistic expression; drip painting was his contribution to art history during his lifetime. This artwork continues to fascinate art lovers around the world with its unique blend of technique and emotion expressed through colors on canvas.
