Jackson Pollock’s “Untitled” (c.1944-45) is a drypoint and engraving in black on white wove paper. Inscribed “2nd proof 1967” among other things. (all images via Swann)

We posted about the Abstract Expressionist print auction last week at Swann Auction House in New York and today we learn that Jackson Pollock’s “Untitled” (c.1944-45), set a print record for the artist.

According to Swann:

A posthumously produced Jackson Pollock drypoint and engraving, “Untitled,” circa 1944-45, one of two proofs prior to an edition of 50 printed for the MoMA, New York, 1967, set a record for any print by Pollock sold at auction. Bringing $102,000, it was the top lot across both sale days.
