Charles Pollock is currently the subject of a retrospective at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice. The exhibition opened in April and runs through September 14. Though less well known than his younger brother Jackson, nevertheless he left behind a formidable body of work. This exhibition documents Charles Pollock’s entire career, with most of the material being loaned by the Charles Pollock Archive, Paris, thanks to the Pollock family. Some of the art and documents have never before been exhibited. Additional loans will come from members of the Pollock family, from the Archives of American Art/Smithsonian Institution, and other institutions and private collections. Early letters, photos, and sketches will document the relationship between Charles and Jackson. Peyton Wright Gallery has several of Pollock’s works available for sale.

His work tends toward color-field painting, and features a calculated geometry and bold palette. His work is represented in a number of notable museums, including the Whitney Museum of Contemporary Art in New York and the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC.
