FEATURED ARTIST

ELAINE DE KOONING "A GENEROUS VISION"

A GENEROUS VISION: The Creative Life of Elaine de Kooning (Oxford, October 2017) paints the life of Elaine de Kooning, a prime mover and vivacious social catalyst in the New York art scene of the mid-twentieth-century. Cathy Curtis speaks of Elaine as an incisive writer and diverse painters. Elaine was a celebrated portrait painter whose sitters involved diverse muses in her circle, including (most famously) John F. Kennedy. Elaine’s fascination with people and animals in motion led her to paint moments such as bull fighting, basketball, Paleolithic cave paintings, and a multi- figure sculpture in the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris.
