My Tea Break

Rediscovering Tea around the world

The Tea Cup by Jackson Pollock

1 Comment

I’ve always been a fan of Jackson Pollock, a major influencer in the Abstract Expressionism movement and famous for his unique style of drip painting.

The Tea Cup was painted by Jackson Pollock in 1946 before the “drip period” between 1947 and 1950. This painting  possesses a balance and serenity that is not common in Pollock’s work. Apparently after the wedding with Lee Kresner, they moved to a new house in Long Island where he experienced long walks along the sea shore and was more in contact with nature which translated into a feeling of tranquility in his paintings.

This painting is at the Museum Frieder Burda in Germany.

Happy Tea Break.
