What do you use your kitchen utensils for when you aren’t prepping #Thanksgiving? In 1951, after 5 years of making his classic “drip” paintings, Jackson Pollock changed course. He used turkey basters—the kind you might find in your kitchen—to squirt paint rather than pour it from cans. He took color out of the equation, too, creating his so-called “black paintings.” In these works, human figures and animal forms emerge alongside more abstract passages. See Pollock’s early black painting “Number 7, 1951” on view in the East Building, an accompaniment to his 1943 “Mural.” Jackson Pollock, "Number 7, 1951," 1951, enamel on canvas, National Gallery of Art, Washington, Gift of the Collectors Committee © 1997 Pollock-Krasner Foundation / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York

'She Who Was Once the Helmet-Maker's Beautiful Wife' - As a modern artist, Rodin wanted to show how life marks the flow of time. The honesty of this sculpture by Rodin must have appealed to Van Gogh a great deal. He also wanted to express a 'feel for humanity' in his figures. http://vangogh.com/QBgt30gICxT #VanGoghContemporaries

Art and China after 1989: Yu Hong: Discover Yu Hong's painting series "Witness to Growth" (1999– ), which pairs China’s social development with the growth of her daughter. “Against the backdrop of a nation-state’s grand narrative,” she says, “the quotidian details of our tiny individual lives are all the more important.” See her work on view in "Art and China after 1989" through January 7.
