Writing & Language
Since its heyday in the 1940s and 1950s, action painting has become closely associated with Jackson Pollock, the abstract expressionist painter who began experimenting with this technique after taking his canvas off the easel and laying it down on the floor. According to Pollock, maneuvering around the canvas on the floor allowed him to get lost in the painting. Photographer Hans Namuth, who once had the opportunity to observe Pollock’s action painting, described it as dancing. He said Pollock gradually picked up speed as he circled the canvas, flinging black, white, and rust-colored paint off his brush until the canvas 1 is covered, a tangle of splashes and splatters and drips.
Select an Answer
Choice D is the best answer because it appropriately uses the past tense verb “was” to continue the account of Namuth’s observations. Other verbs in the sentence (“picked” and “circled”) are also in the past tense.
