New photographs of Jackson Pollock revealed

Tony Vaccaro, 'Jackson and Lee, August 1953', 1953

Previously unseen photographs of Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner are about to go on display at the Pollock Krasner House and Study Centre.  Taken by Pollock’s acquaintance Tony Vaccaro (better known for his WWII photographs), the shots were to be included in a Look Magazine article on East Hampton artists that never came to fruition.  While Vaccaro’s colour film was lost, his black and white contact sheets remain intact.  And it is from these that the photographs in the show – many of which have never been seen or printed before – were taken.
