Jackson Pollock’s Mural (1943) is recognized as one of the pivotal achievements of the artist’s career, the moment when he left figuration behind, expanded the scale of his work, and started to develop his signature drip technique. The MFA has commissioned German artist Katharina Grosse to respond to this work, in an effort to demonstrate how the two artists have respectively transformed painting through their innovative techniques and approaches to massive scale.
