WORKS ON PAPER BY WILLEM DE KOONING
Painting, blotting, scraping, drawing. These actions barely begin to describe the dynamic creative process of de Kooning, who often worked -and used these techniques- on many works at once. In this manner, works on paper influenced, even created, many of his paintings on canvas. The following works are strong examples of his explorations of a vocabulary of forms and interpretations of the figure and nature on the various paper supports that he favored throughout his career.
