Harry Jackson

 

 

Possibly the only figure in American art to claim friendship with Jackson Pollock and John Wayne, the iconoclastic Harry Jackson was born in Chicago and grew up in his mother’s diner near the stockyards where men of the range brought their cattle to market. Jackson went West in his teens, served in the Pacific in World War II, went East to meet Pollock, then rediscovered realism and made the West his subject while he lived and worked in Italy. Jackson’s bronzes convey the energy of a single moment in time as that moment existed inside the larger sweep of history.
