MoMA

Jackson Pollock. Bird. c. 1938–41. Oil and sand on canvas, 27 3/4 × 24 1/4ʺ (70.5 × 61.6 cm). Gift of Lee Krasner in memory of Jackson Pollock. © 2016 Pollock-Krasner Foundation / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York

The first retrospective in New York since the one mounted by MoMA in 1967. The exhibition provides a fresh chance for new generations of artists to come to terms with a legendary figure and enables the broader public to reassess a quintessentially American artist in light of three decades of new scholarship and speculation on his work and often tempestuous life.

How we identified these works

In 2018–19, MoMA collaborated with Google Arts & Culture Lab on a project using machine learning to identify artworks in installation photos. That project has concluded, and works are now being identified by MoMA staff.
