I have been in touch with a professor about doing an AI fractal analysis of the work but other than that I have not had it authenticated other than I have spoken with Diane Brzeski at Anco Wood Specialties who I sent a digital image of the stretcher bar with the hand stamped palette and compass logo. She indicated that this proved that the stretcher was made before 1950 and thus within Jackson Pollocks' lifetime. Pigment analysis will also probably be necessary.
The canvas is in overall good condition for a heavy painted work at 70 plus years of age. Is now kept in climate controlled environment and out of sunlight.
One Art expert I consulted with said the painting is a hybrid of several different periods of Pollock's works from the 1940s and 1950s but it's composition of multiple looped dripped lines is most closely related to works from the late 1940's. I don't think the red drip was intentional but came by accident in his studio while he was dripping the red onto a larger work.
The painting shows in good condition, looks to have been in storage for a long time. I believe his initials are incorporated into the dripwork.This painting was found as you see it, as is, no modification or cleaning has been done to it. Only proximity to NYC where it was found.
