This latest volume in "The MoMA Artist Series" guides readers through ten of de Koonings most memorable achievements, chosen from The Museum of Modern Arts substantial collection of his work, including paintings and drawings in his "Woman series" which famously introduced a savage figuration into Abstract Expressionism and other important works produced throughout his career.
This is a lively essay by Carolyn Lanchner, a former curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum, accompanies each work, illuminating its significance and placing it in its historical moment in the development of modern art.
