DEFINITION

Applying paint to a ground such as canvas by dripping or pouring the paint, it is a method used early in the 20th Century by experimental artists including Max Ernst. The goal of Drip Painters was to explore and enjoy the physical process of applying paint. It came to international attention beginning the 1940s with Action Painters in New York City, especially Jackson Pollock, who began Drip Painting in 1947. His method was to lay the canvas on the floor and drip the paint with energetic arm-swinging motions. Source: "Phaidon Dictionary of Twentieth-Century Art" (Also see Gestural Painting, Gesturalism)
