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

    You might also see if you can get a copy of this thesis from Harvard:
    The first Crite Prize goes to Daniel Hobin, concentrator in studio arts, film, and photography. Hobin's thesis, "Conflict and Convergence: A Study of the Synthesis of Opposites in Jackson Pollock's Art," was directed by Harry A. Cooper, associate curator of Modern Art in the Harvard University Art Museums and lecturer on the history of art and architecture. Cooper praised the thesis as "a thoughtful and original contribution to the Jackson Pollock literature. It extends the Jungian school of interpretation beyond iconography to basic matters of pictorial organization, and it successfully locates the meanings thus discovered both in universal psychological themes and in the immediate social and intellectual milieu of postwar America."
