Title

Untitled D99


Artist

Willem de Kooning

Netherlands, United States of America

24 Apr 1904 - 19 Mar 1997


About

Of the many undated drawings left in the artist's studio this is one of the most expressive of the Woman series while being more specifically about drawing. The linear quality of this piece is very fresh and reveals some fascinating juxtapositions of haptic gesture with anatomical investigation. The left hand and feet are quite detailed and rendered in space while the torso is typically blurred and exaggerated. This work reveals the process in its primary state.
