"Action Jackson" was Jackson Pollock's nickname, and this picture-book biography describes how this "athlete with a paintbrush" made one of his most famous works: the "drip painting" titled Lavender Mist. Using spare, lyrical words, the authors layer the exciting story with deep observations about what art is, how it is made, and why Pollock was so extraordinary.If you haven't tried this site for making your own Pollack masterpieces, you really must!
