This paper explores the work of Jackson Pollock, with an emphasis on his innovative style and its continued impact on contemporary art. The paper examines the world of art that came before Pollock during the middle years of the 20th century. Historical events, such as World War II, and their influence on art and thought are also discussed. The paper then describes the techniques Pollock used in applying paint to a canvass. Two of Pollocks works are highlighted and described. The first is entitled "Lucifer," and the other is "Blue Poles, Number 11," which is considered to stand out above all his others. The author concludes that Pollock's art has the uncanny ability to find order out of disorder.
