Almost certainly 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 motherÕs 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 and paint among the new-minted Abstract Expressionist, then rediscovered realism and made the West his subject while he lived and worked in Italy. JacksonÕs bronzes convey the kinetics of a moment in time as that moment fits into the larger sweep of history.
