Fans recall American artist Jackson Pollock at 100

In this April 3, 2012 photo, the building that housed Jackson Pollock's studio is shown in East Hampton, N.Y. Pollock painted some of the 20th century's greatest masterpieces in the building, dripping paint off brushes, sticks and even turkey basters on to canvasses laid out on the floor. Pollock, who died in an automobile accident in 1956 at age 44, would have turned 100 in 2012. (AP Photo/Frank Eltman)Out behind a small farmhouse on a Long Island country road sits an old gray barn where a tormented artist dripped paint off brushes, sticks — even turkey basters — onto canvasses spread out on a wooden floor. Besides making quite a mess of things, leaving splash marks everywhere, Jackson Pollock also created some of the 20th century’s greatest masterpieces.
