Jackson Pollock's “Croaking Movement” was one of seven works grouped for Pollock's 1947 exhibition at Peggy Guggenheim's Art of This Century Gallery in New York City.

As a collection, these seven works were called “Sounds in the Grass”.

If you compare it to other works by Pollock, where he used the dripping technique, you notice the “dry” side of the applied paint.

No drips, no droplets in it, but on the contrary, an application of the paint by crushing the tube directly on the canvas.

An application often followed by spreading the material applied with blunt instruments to create a thick texture effect, to form crusts of paints.

The dry and angular side of this type of colour application is further amplified because Pollock has scratched its canvas to draw lines and curves, to include secondary shapes in the prominent figures.
