The 1000-piece "Convergence" puzzle is a beautiful and challenging addition to your own collection or gift for your favorite puzzle fan. In 1952, Jackson Pollock painted "Convergence", a collage of colors splattered on a canvas that created masterful shapes and lines that evoke emotions and attack the eye. Beautiful and challenging addition to your own collection or gift for your favorite puzzle fan.
By the mid–1940s Pollock was painting in a wholly abstract manner, and in 1947 he arrived at the drip and splash style with which he is most often associated. Affixing canvases to a wall, the floor, or the ground if painting outdoors, Pollock dripped and poured commercial house paint from cans and arranged it using “sticks, trowels, or knives,” sometimes augmenting it with sand, broken glass, or “foreign matter,” as Pollock stated it. He placed great import on being able to walk around such paintings and work on them from all four sides. Such “action painting,” opined artists and critics, expressed or revealed the unconscious moods of the artist. Pollock’s drip paintings, as Willem de Kooning said, “broke the ice” for the Abstract Expressionists who followed Pollock.
