Jackson Pollock once reportedly acknowledged that he had two masters—Thomas Hart Benton and Stanley William Hayter. Engaging original prints and paintings in the Gallery’s collection, Elisabeth (Lisa) Hodermarsky, the Sutphin Family Senior Associate Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Yale University Art Gallery, and Elizabeth L. Langhorne, Professor of Art History in the Art Department at Central Connecticut State University, explore the powerful formative influences, both stylistic and psychological, that these two elder masters played in Pollock’s artistic development.
