Art Lovers Book Club de Kooning: An American Master by Mark Stevens
November 21, 2019 04:00 PM

Category:  Art Lover's Book Club

Willem de Kooning is one of the most important artists of the twentieth century, a true “painter’s painter” whose protean work continues to inspire many artists. In the thirties and forties, along with Arshile Gorky and Jackson Pollock, he became a key figure in the revolutionary American movement of abstract expressionism. Of all the painters in that group, he worked the longest and was the most prolific, creating powerful, startling images well into the 1980s. This is an authoritative and brilliant exploration of the art, life, and world of an American master.   more >>
