INFLUENTIAL American artist Jackson Pollock’s renowned ‘Mural’ is currently on show at the Museo Picasso in Malaga.

The 2×6 metre work, created in 1943 and worth an estimated €123m, is on loan from the University of Iowa.

Pollock posthumously became America’s most famous twentieth century artist for his pioneering abstract work.

Mural was commissioned by Peggy Guggenheim after her advisor, art dealer Howard Putzel, urged her to allow Pollock to express himself on a large canvas.
