Blue Poles Number 11.

Name: Blue Poles Number 11.
Artist: Jackson Pollock
Location: The National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.
Year: 1952

"I don't work from drawings or coloured sketches. My painting is direct. I usually paint on the floor. I enjoy working on a large canvas. I feel more at home, more at ease in a large area. Having the canvas on the floor, I feel nearer, more a part of the painting. This way I can walk around it, work from all four sides, and be in the painting." (Jackson Pollock ) Blue Poles is considered one of Pollock's finest works. It now hangs in the National Gallery of Australia.
