About Untitled (O'Connor-Thaw 771)

“Untitled (O’Connor-Thaw 771)” is an artwork by Jackson Pollock, created approximately between the years 1946 and 1947. The piece is executed in Indian ink on paper, measuring 22.5 x 30.2 cm. It is associated with the Abstract Expressionist movement, although it is classified under the figurative genre.

The artwork is a complex composition that features an array of dynamic and swirling lines. Despite the categorization as figurative, the depiction challenges clear and immediate recognition of forms, characteristic of Pollock’s abstract approach. The strokes vary in thickness and intensity, suggesting a vigorous application of ink, which creates a sense of movement and depth. The density of the lines and forms in the central area of the artwork draws the viewer’s eye, while the lighter areas provide a sense of space and contrast. There seems to be an interplay of dark and light patches, which may represent figures or objects, yet they remain enigmatic, inviting interpretation. Overall, “Untitled (O’Connor-Thaw 771)” encapsulates the raw energy and the departure from traditional representation that are hallmarks of Pollock’s oeuvre and the broader Abstract Expressionist movement.
