De Kooning: Until 1949

Image coming soon.

Altoon Sultan blogs about the MoMA de Kooning retrospective, focusing on the early career paintings before 1950.  

Writing about Father, Mother, Sister, Brother, c. 1937, Sultan remarks: "I am struck by the pure grace of this image, and find myself thinking of Indian miniatures, which also have flat areas of gorgeous color bounded by sensitive line; also of Matisse, and of course Arshile Gorky, a friend and great influence. The paint is alive, the surface doesn't sit still, the figure is lost and found and lost again."
