According to the New York Times, there are only six surviving sculptures by Jackson Pollock. One, Untitled (c.1949) is at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and, now, the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) has announced that it has acquired Untitled (1956). The others are in private collections (although ARTnews’ math puts five of the sculptures in private collections).
Untitled (1956) was one of two sculptures created in the summer of 1956, when he was staying at the home of his friend Tony Smith while suffering from depression. They are considered to be the last works by Pollock before his fatal car crash later that summer.
The sculpture is currently on view in the DMA’s exhibition Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots, which runs until March 20.
