Restoring Jackson Pollock’s ‘Mural’

Turning a Scientific Eye on Art

Art experts at the Getty Conservation Institute are using X-rays, scanning electron microscopy and mass spectrometers to probe a $140 million painting by Jackson Pollock. For the past 18 months, the Getty’s researchers have been repairing effects of earlier preservation work on the massive 8-by-20-foot painting, while exploring the artist’s radical technique and materials.
