Overview

Willem de Kooning was a pioneering figure of Abstract Expressionism, one of the most influential champions of the dynamic, process-driven painting that brought New York to the center of the art world in the 1940s and 1950s.

An essay by Carolyn Lanchner, a former curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum, accompanies each work.
