There can be absolutely no doubt as to the impressive legacy left by Jackson Pollock with in the art world following his premature death, at a time when his career was really starting to take off. It is fair to say that his most prominent times have been since, and the media have played a large part in accomplishing that.
There have been a whole host of different media outputs that have drawn attention to Jackson Pollock over recent decades, covering everything from documentaries on the artist's life, written detailed accounts of his life and relationship with Lee Krasner, frequent exhbitions of his work as well as influenced designs in popular culture from all manner of artists.
Jackson's prominence within his native America, and that country's influence on international media has also helped in keeping his name very much at the forefront of the 20th century abstract art scene. He continues to be placed in the same category of the likes of Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko and others from around that era.
A shrinking supply of his original paintings on the open market has also helped to fuel some extraordinary prices at public sale for several of his paintings in recent years, and any in future that can be for sale are likely to go for even more as that trend continues.
