The seller, gallery-arts, Toronto, Ontario, Canada:
This painting is being sold as an attribution to JACKSON POLLOCK. Size is 16 x 20 inches, with ANCO BILT (Glendale, N.Y.) marked into the stretcher bars. It is my understanding Pollock used this company to buy supplies. The dating of the work can easily be assigned to the 1950's based on stretcher and canvas patina and type of paint used, which certainly is house paint, oil and enamel. Also the edges of the canvas are nailed into the stretcher bars. Tiny bits of crackling consistant with the age (1950's). The frame may not be period. When I was photographing the painting the signature was discovered - its certainly not obvious, I had not known it existed on the piece. Looks like a real Jackson Pollock, it is my understanding that at the moment there is no one, no committe to authenticate his work.
Provenance: New York City.
"Looks like a real Jackson Pollock".
No it doesn't. Not at all!
Jackson Pollock is one of the most famous painters in modern American art but he doesn't paint like this.
