by BWW News Desk - Feb 26, 2015

Elaine de Kooning made both abstract and figurative paintings and drawings during the height of Abstract Expressionism in New York City. Fairfield Porter once commented that de Kooning's images of men, for which she is best known, were “both sympathetic and frighteningly acute.” De Kooning's gestural portraits of friends and family were much admired during her lifetime and included such well-known Americans as President John F. Kennedy, poets Frank O'Hara and Allen Ginsberg, critic Harold Rosenberg, choreographer Merce Cunningham and painters Willem de Kooning and Fairfield Porter. In her portraits, Elaine de Kooning sought the “instantaneous illumination” of recognition and worked to capture that moment. She characterized her portraits of John F.
