03 Inspecting the Heavy Impasto

Jackson Pollock at SAM (Seattle Art Museum)

In my never ending quest to see all the Jackson Pollock paintings that I can, I made a visit to the Seattle Art Museum where Sea Change is displayed, in all its glory.

Sea Change, was created in 1947 at the beginning of Jackson Pollock’s “drip-period” and was previously owned by art patron Peggy Guggenheim until its donation to SAM in 1958. Below is a short video outlining the conservation of Sea Change.

The Seattle Art Museum is a very cool place and you shouldn’t miss it if you’re in the area. You can see just a tiny bit of what the museum has to offer below.
