DALLAS — The Dallas Museum of Art has acquired a sculpture by Jackson Pollock, one of only six still in existence.
The museum announced the acquisition Friday, as its exhibition focusing on Pollock’s lesser-known “black paintings” enters its final weeks.
The abstract sculpture is currently on display as part of the exhibit, titled “Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots.” The exhibit opened in November. It’s on view through March 20.
Primarily known for his “drip” paintings, Pollock produced more than a dozen sculptures, but many were lost or destroyed by the artist.
The sculpture acquired by the Dallas museum was created in 1956, just weeks before Pollock died at 44.
With the acquisition, the museum now has four works by Pollock, including the painting “Cathedral.”
