de Kooning

Both Elaine and Willem were painters which I haven’t yet blogged about. As readers are likely aware it has taken some recent academic pushes to rewrite Elaine’s (and others) deserved place in the narrative of NY-based painters in mid-century America (with the Denver museum making perhaps the biggest move although not the only one).

There’s been no shortage of words written about her husband of course. When I first noted their absence from this blog I immediately became curious about how their relationship informed their work.
