Beschrijving

With lavish, full colour documentation, this volume is the most complete account of Willem de Kooning’s career ever published.

Accompanying a major exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, de Kooning: A Retrospective tracks Willem de Kooning’s development over a full seven decades, beginning with his first surviving painting, made when he was twelve, and ending with his spare, extraordinarily refined canvases of the 1980s.

The plates show nearly 200 paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures, while over 500 illustrations reproduce hundreds more of the artist’s works and a selection of art relevant to him, ranging from 4,000-year-old Greek statuary to the work of his peers.

Representing nearly every type of work de Kooning made, this retrospective includes paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints. Among these are the artist’s most famous landmark paintings – among them Pink Angels, Excavation and the celebrated third Woman series – plus in-depth presentations of all his most important series, ranging from his figurative paintings of the early 1940s to the black-and-white compositions of 1948–49, and from the urban abstractions of the mid 1950s to the artist’s return to figuration in the 1960s and the large gestural abstractions of the following decade. Also included is de Kooning’s famous yet largely unseen theatrical backdrop, the 17-foot-square Labyrinth.

The book’s chapters, and its introductory essay by John Elderfield, MoMA’s Chief Curator Emeritus of Painting and Sculpture, explore the startling complexities of de Kooning’s practice, while an illustrated chronology tells the story of his life.

John Elderfield is Chief Curator Emeritus of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art. He has organized numerous exhibitions at the Museum, including major retrospectives devoted to Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse and Kurt Schwitters and Matisse: Radical Invention, 1913–1917.
