CLUE#1 LEE

In 1945, he married the artist Lee Krasner, who became an important influence on his career and on his legacy.John Bernard Myers, a noted art dealer, was once quoted to say that "there would never have been a Jackson Pollock without a Lee Pollock", whereas Fritz Bultman, a fellow painter, had referred to Pollock as Krasner's "creation, her Frankenstein", both men recognizing the immense impact Krasner had on Pollock's career.

CLUE#2 JACK THE DRIPPER

In 1956, Time magazine dubbed Pollock "Jack the Dripper", due to his painting style.

Initial reactions to the work by the uninitiated were underwhelming: "You spent money on 'that'?"The initial reaction of Ted Dragon, Ossorio's partner (Alfonso Ossorio decided to purchase a "paint drip" composition; he chose No.5, 1948 and paid $1,500.
