The Moon Woman, 1942

Jackson Pollock

(Oil on canvas)


A favorite painting - food, on several occasions, for my own writing.

In Jackson Pollock: An American Saga, Steven Naifeh and Gregory Smith refer to Moon Woman as “astonishingly tender and lyrical”. I agree. It has a dark depth, but is truly a meeting place for the human and the mythical. A blending of the erotic with spiritual elements.

Thanks for the view, G. I identify with Pollock's work on several levels.
