That last statement (people who prefer action painting suffer from brain damage) really needs some justification! Paullusmagnus 23:13, 27 Sep 2003 (UTC)

I (Camembert) am removing it - as you say, it really needs a cite. Here it is for anybody interested:

Scientists have shown that the brains of people who prefer action painting over more traditional painting are often affected by stunted development or disease.


The image in this article (Image:JacksonPollock-1.jpg) does not currently have any source or copyright information - and so it can now be deleted. I've looked around on google images for the original but can't source it. Does anyone here know where its from or have a free replacement image they could upload?

Fair use rationale for Image:Jackson Pollock Galaxy.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Jackson Pollock Galaxy.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

No sourcing for any of the artists listed[edit]

None of the artists notable in action painting have been cited. I am going to begin going through them and either removing them if I cannot find any sources for the information, or citing them if I find sources. (Paytonf1221 (talk) 15:31, 18 April 2018 (UTC))
