By the time this artwork was painted in 1969, Dr. Seuss certainly would have become familiar with Jackson Pollock’s drip paintings—the genre of abstract art Pollock made famous between 1947 and1950, rewarding him with a place in art history. An avid artistic and cultural sponge, it’s possible that Ted, while on his annual New York trip to Random House, saw MoMA’s 1967 comprehensive Pollock exhibition. Either way, knowledge of Pollock’s drip paintings was practically unavoidable.
