Willem de Kooning, Paperback / softback Book


Willem de Kooning was a pioneering figure among Abstract Expressionists, one of the most influential champions of the dynamic, process-driven painting that brought NewYork to the centre of the art world in the 1950s.

This latest volume in the MoMA Artist Series guides readers through ten of de Kooning's most memorable achievements, chosen fromThe Museum of Modern Art's substantial collection of his work, including paintings and drawings in hisWoman series - which famously introduced a savage figuration into Abstract Expressionism - and other important works produced throughout his career.

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.
