Through advanced technical imaging, conservators studied and treated the painting, learning how it was created. Visitors are in for a unique treat as scientific results join the mural to fill two entire galleries with detailed looks into Pollock and his techniques.
Columbia is part of a whirlwind international tour that includes England, Germany, and Spain, as well as premier American museums. This is an opportunity not to be missed.
