The She-Wolf.

Name: The She-Wolf.
Artist: Jackson Pollock
Location: The Museum of Modern Art, New York
Year: 1943

By all accounts Jackson Pollock was a difficult and intensive man and a ferocious painter. It is possible that this painting is actually a self-portrait. It is considered a fine example of his early work. At this time of his career, Pollock's major influence was Picasso and he struggled hard to move out of the Old Spaniard's shadow. The 'She-Wolf' even looks a bit like a Picasso painting. He once stated his goal to "create a 'parallel version' of Picasso."
