Celebrated for his magnificent abstractions and bubbly female forms, the MOMA is hosting the largest de Kooning exhibit to date made up of a compilation of almost 200 pieces that cover all 17,000 square feet of the entire sixth floor of the museum.
The 20th century artist is widely known for defining postwar American art through figural representations and dramatic colors. The retrospective travels through seven decades of de Kooning’s career, from his early works in Holland to his developments in the United States. Included in the exhibition are his black-and-white composition series that shaped his aesthetic as well as the Woman I series that carved his career direction. Having worked in a variety of mediums the show touches on several and includes paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints in addition to famous pieces such as, Pink Angles, Excavation, Labyrinth and third Woman Series. – Jordana Longo
