Pollock, The Moon Woman
Painting - Oil on Canvas (175.2 × 109.3 cm) 1942

In this 1942 painting by Jackson Pollock, « The Moon Woman », Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró are still quite present.

As in Pablo Picasso's painting « Woman in front of a mirror », Pollock's « Moon Woman » is shown as an X-ray, with its spine, long black line, striking the picture from top to bottom, with his head planted on it.

Still, like Picasso, Pollock shows here both the profile and the face of the woman, her two faces, her inner and dark face contrasting with her "public" and peaceful face.

« The Moon Woman » is shown in its entirety, surrounded by flowers in all her femininity.

But also, in all its complexity in a drawing tortured shapes and colours.
