Pollock was a pivotal member of the New York avant-garde during the rise of Abstract Expressionism in the 1940s and early 1950s. While most painters prior to Pollock applied paint with a brush to a stretched, upright canvas, Pollock worked during this period on unstretched canvases laid out on the ground. Each mark he made was the result and record of the physical gesture that formed it, inspiring the famous description of Pollock's work as "action painting." This automatic method appealed to Pollock because it enabled him to explore physical and subconscious expression rather than approaching painting from an intellectual source or premeditated design. In this painting drips and splatters form an intricate network of curving lines whose interaction creates a rich tonal structure in which the bright white lines guide the viewer through an experience of lively movement and space.

eHarmony settles lawsuit over same-sex matching

Tuesday, January 26, 2010; 9:27 PM

NEW YORK (Reuters) - eHarmony Inc, which operates a website to help singles find relationships, said on Tuesday that it settled a class action lawsuit over same-sex matching.

All claims against the company will be dismissed and a $2 million settlement fund will be established, eHarmony said, with $500,000 designated as a fund for claims by the class.

eHarmony, based in Pasadena, California, did not admit any wrongdoing or liability by settling the case, which was filed in 2007 on behalf of a class of gay, lesbian and bisexual individuals in California who alleged they were unable to use the website to be matched with same-sex partners.
