What should they look for?

May 16, 2009

Pollock was asked that question of his paintings. Here was his answer:

I think they should not look for, but look passively — and try to receive what the painting has to offer and not bring a subject matter or preconceived idea of what they are to be looking for.

From an interview in the summer of 1950 with William Wright for the Sag Harbor radio station.
