Jackson's early success as an artist came in the post World War II period when he settled in New York and painted in an abstract style. He embraced the modernist vocabulary in art. This painting shows the influence of Cubism in the way that Jackson breaks up forms and uses space in a non-linear way. Although he received recognition as an Abstract Expressionist artist, Jackson later chose to leave New York for Wyoming and to return to portraying the human figure.
