In this painting, “Circumcision”, the Pollock style is already more clearly asserted than in previous works.

While Pablo Picasso's influences, Miró and Cubism, are still visible, their presence is already much more erased in favour of Jackson Pollock's creation.

What strikes is the multiplication of characters; the principal, the central and unique theme, has given way to a tangle of interlocking, reversed, inverted names and shapes.

The repetition of colours and their use deviate from the flat to transform into curved and broken lines, refined with the primary colours that streak the painting, creating a second painting superimposed on the first.

The painting's whole becomes significantly more dynamic, and the eyes can no longer stop, attracted each time to another part of it while not knowing where to start or end.
