Pollock's Transformed "Mural" Begins European Tour
This weekend, one of Iowa's most famous paintings begins a European tour after having a facelift of sorts. Jackson Pollock's "Mural" spent a few years at Davenport's Figge Art Museum due to a flood in Iowa City.
Later it was was shipped to the Getty Museum in Los Angeles for conservation. And "Mural" did not disappoint, giving the art world a rare glimpse into Pollock's art before he began pouring, dripping, and flinging paint onto canvas.
On today's WVIK News Focus, Michelle O'Neill reports.
"Pollock's 'Mural': Energy Made Visible" opens on Saturday, April 25th, 2015 at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice.
