A Way of Living: The Art of Willem de Kooning

The Art of Willem de Kooning, the bestselling and critically acclaimed monograph on one of the most influential painters of the twentieth century.



Willem de Kooning was an important exponent of abstract expressionism. The 2011 retrospective of de Kooning at MoMA attracted record attendance, and his prodigious achievements continue to provoke and inspire subsequent generations of artists such as Cecily Brown, Rebecca Warren and Jonathan Lasker.

This is the most comprehensive monograph on this artist. Lushly illustrated and produced, the book covers his major works and periods, including his controversial "Woman" paintings, as well as a wealth of accompanying sketches and preparatory drawings.

An illustrated chronology charts de Kooning's life, career and work, with photographs from the artist's archives scattered throughout the book, giving readers a deeper understanding of the broader art historical context of his paintings. Judith Zilczer's acclaimed monograph is an essential addition to the libraries of a new audience of readers and de Kooning enthusiasts, offering an unprecedented and compelling examination of his oeuvre
