9780312367510: Action Jackson

One late spring morning the American artist Jackson Pollock began work on the canvas that would ultimately come to be known as Number 1, 1950 (Lavender Mist).

Award-winning authors Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan use this moment as the departure point for a unique picture book about a great painter and the way in which he worked. Their lyrical text, drawn from Pollock's own comments and those made by members of his immediate circle, is perfectly complemented by vibrant watercolors by Robert Andrew Parker that honor his spirit of the artist without imitating his paintings.

A photographic reproduction of the finished painting, a short biography, a bibliography, and a detailed list of notes and sources that are fascinating reading in their own right make this an authoritative as well as beautiful book for readers of all ages.

Action Jackson is a Sibert Honor Book, a New York Times Best Book of the Year, and a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year.

About the Author:

Ms. Jordan, whose photographic picture book Frog Hunt was published by Roaring Book Press, lives in New York City.

Robert Andrew Parker who knew Jackson Pollock as a young man, is a fine artist and printmaker whose work often appears in publications such as The New Yorker. The illustrator of the Modern Library's edition of Stendhal's The Charterhouse of Parma, his numerous children's books include Grandfather Tang's Story, Sleds on Boston Common, and Cold Feet, winner of the 2002 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award.

From AudioFile:

This American Library Association Sibert Honor book details the creation of a Jackson Pollack painting. Pollack's studied and careful process incorporates his world experiences--from the big sky and Native American sand painting of his Western boyhood to the beat of his favorite jazz musicians. From the moment the canvas is placed on the floor until the last flick of his unconventional medium, house paint, Jackson moves and dances around his work. Ed Harris's straightforward and unobtrusive narration provides ample opportunity for the listener to appreciate the artist at work. Some painting moments are studied and reflective; others are a frenzy of activity. Harris's tone and pacing mirror each. Gentle jazz provides just the right background.
