Willem de Kooning

New York Art World ® - Commentary Index - Artists Listings - Themes

       Willem de Kooning transformed the traditions of European art to create his own energetic and unconstrained style.


While much of his work was entirely abstract, de Kooning's best known paintings blend abstraction and figural representation.


Skittering black lines, shifting shapes, fragmented body parts, and flashes of color fill the surface of his 1948 work Asheville.

1904 - 1977
