Discuss a minimum of two reasons why Jackson Pollock's Convergence (p. 510, Figure 734), is a work of "fine art" as opposed to an arbitrary composition of paint.

Imagine that you are a defense attorney for this work of art. Establish a very strong "argument" for this artwork by first establishing what defines "fine art." Support your argument with research. In addition, consider what influenced the artist to create work like Convergence, and discuss how this work fits into the specific era, and the specific movement from which it comes.

If you use additional sources use reliable/credible sources (retail sites are not considered reliable resources). All writing must be in your own words. Do not cut and paste information from any website.


The middle paragraph lays it out for you. You have to establish a definition of "fine art." Once that is done, you have to fit Pollack's work into that definition. You may want to examine other pieces also, such as “Reckless” (1998) by Polly Apfelbaum, or the works of Piet Mondrian, or of Max Ernst using the same definition of fine art you developed.
