Willem de Kooning is one of the most important painters at work in the middle of our century and a key figure in Abstract Expressionism. Speaking of his work, de Kooning said, “I’m not interested in abstracting … I paint this way because I can keep putting more things in it - drama, anger, pain, love, a figure, a horse, my ideas about space. Through your eyes it again becomes an emotion or idea.” de Kooning influenced an entire generation of painters.
