Not as exciting a mystery as in The Davinci Code, but, writing exclusively for Smithsonian magazine, Adams, a professor of art history at Case Western Reserve University, claims Pollock camouflaged his name in this 1940s painting. Adams describes how he discovered the letters and discusses his provocative idea. Is Pollock’s name written all over the painting? Explore the mural for yourself and see what you think. Click here .
