Jackson Pollock's Mural: Transition, Context, Afterlife

In 1943 Jackson Pollock made his first monumental work for the New York apartment of his patron, Peggy Guggenheim. Stories about the creation and installation of the painting, entitled Mural, have dominated interpretations for decades. Recent study and conservation at the Getty debunks many of these myths, recasting this iconic work in a new light. Take part in a day of lively conversation about Mural, its context and its legacies, among art historians, scientists, and conservators. This program is free; reservations required.
