Hao Sheng on Arnold Chang

Arnold Chang responded to Jackson Pollock’s canvas Number 10 (1949), with his painting Secluded Valley in the Cold Mountains and his earlier sketch Brushwork Study for Reorienting Pollock.

Watch as Hao Sheng, Wu Tung Curator of Chinese Art, explains the impact of Chang’s painting on American viewers, and highlights how the overlapping influences of Pollock’s abstract expressionism and the age-old technique of Chinese brush painting generated a distinctive development process for Chang’s work.
