"LOS ANGELES—Abstract expressionist painter Jackson Pollock’s seminal work Mural (1943) will be conserved as part of a new collaboration between the Getty and the University of Iowa Museum of Art.

The painting will travel to the Getty Center in Los Angeles this summer, where it will undergo technical study and conservation treatment by research scientists at the Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) and conservators at the J. Paul Getty Museum".
