Happy Birthday Jackson Pollack

Yesterday, January 28th, was the birthday of  abstract expressionist painter Jackson Pollack (1912-1956).

You can celebrate, too. Go to Be Jackson Pollack (be sure to move and click).

Mr. Pollack had a readily identifiable (and readily copied) style. If you need help identifying authentic works by the artist, a computer program might help.
