woman enjoying art work by Willem DeKooning
acrylic on panel (masonite)
35 1/2" x 27 2/3" or 90 x 70 cm
Willem deKooning is well known for his abstract expressionists works of art. Woman I was one of a series of six paintings centered upon a female figure that deKooning worked on from 1950 to 1953.
Here, he took the opportunity to further experiment with the wide-ranging methods of applying paint to canvas. It might surprise you that DeKooning made numerous preliminary studies then repainted the canvas repeatedly, scraping away and re-working the image, over nearly two years.
I of course didn't work on it for over two years, just one month, but as I'm a realist artist it was a welcome change to splash some paint around!
