Jackson Pollock’s No. 5, 1948 is a great example of how art gives tangible form to feelings and ideas.  Pollock was well-known for being an abstract expressionist, which gave him the motivation to create the many paintings that we may consider to be quite interesting as there seems to be nothing tangible being depicted.  Interesting note of this painting, it sold for an estimated record of $140M.

  1. Thanks professor. I have a fascination for paintings, and am intrigued by the works of multiple painters, including Pollock.
