Jackson Pollock was the quintessential tortured genius who rose from obscurity to take his place among the titans of modern art, and whose paintings now command millions of dollars.

Join Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer, Steven Naifeh, for a look at the life behind this extraordinary talent and achievement—the disjointed childhood, sibling rivalry, sexual ambiguity and artistic frustration which fueled his art.
