The researchers from Boston College and Harvard believe Pollock was an intuitive master of laws that govern the flow of liquids under gravity. "In order to understand what is taking place with Pollock, it's essential to understand the laws of physics and the dynamics at play under the laws of gravity," Claude Cernuschi, a professor of art history at Boston...
