Luce Artist Biography

Charles Pollock moved from Los Angeles to New York in 1926 and studied with Thomas Hart Benton at the Art Students League. A few years later, he changed the life of his younger brother, Jackson, when he persuaded him to come to the East Coast and study art. Charles created social realist images during the 1930s and ’40s and supervised mural painting for the Works Progress Administration in Michigan. He taught typographical design and etching at Michigan State University until retiring in the 1960s, when he moved to France.
