F. V. O'Connor, Jackson Pollock: A Catalogue Raisonné of Paintings, Drawings, and Other Works, New York, 1995, pp. 40 and 48, no. 42 (P12) (illustrated).
The present work is from a rare series of serigraphs that Pollock made between the years 1950 and 1952. Formally and stylistically, they relate to an important group of poured drawings from 1950 to 1951 and also a series of poured black paintings that the artist made between 1951 to 1952.
