Modern Paints: A New Collaborative Research Project
detail - painting - J.Pollock

Jackson Pollock, Summertime: Number 9A, 1948. Oil, enamel, and house paint on canvas. The GCI has analyzed samples from other paintings by Pollock to identify the binding media. Pollock was known to use both artists' tube paints and ordinary house paints. The GCI studies were able to establish which of the two types of paints were present in the paintings studied.
