 Jackson Pollock exhibition in Munich  

A selection of intimate and lesser-known works by Pollock, together with family photographs and artifacts, is on view in “Jackson Pollock Simply Is: Up Close and Personal,” at the American Contemporary Art Gallery in Munich. The exhibition is on view through March 30, 2019. The material–including screen prints, engravings, sketches and a small sculpture–is from Pollock’s nephew, Jason McCoy, a New York art dealer and the son of Sanford McCoy, one of Pollock’s four brothers.
——————
McCoy was the birth name of their father, LeRoy McCoy, whose name was changed when he was adopted by a family named Pollock. As an adult, his son Sanford took back the McCoy name.
Studio stools

Two artifacts in particular relate directly to Pollock’s painting practice: a pair of paint-spattered low stools from the Springs studio, as seen in photographs taken in 1950 by Hans Namuth. Evidently Krasner used them after Pollock’s death, since they’re also covered with spatters from her tenure in the studio.
