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. Kennedy as “a glimpse” of the president through an accumulation of sketches and finished likenesses. (more...)

Dominique Lévy Gallery to Present Post-War Art ExhibitDominique Lévy Gallery to Present Post-War Art Exhibit
by BWW News Desk - Sep 23, 2014

New York/London... Dominique Lévy gallery is pleased to announce a transatlantic exhibition that captures a fleeting but profound moment of creative intersection in the careers of three exalted Post-war artists. Local History brings together rarely seen early works of the 1950s through early 1970s by Enrico Castellani, Donald Judd, and Frank Stella, and juxtaposes them with important later examples that reveal each artist's distinct evolution and the varying degrees of reverberation from their brief aesthetic collision in the 1960s. The exhibition takes as its starting point Judd's effort to formulate what he dubbed a 'specific object' - an artwork that was neither painting, nor sculpture but something beyond the confines of those existing categories - and spotlights the surprising impact upon his quest of Castellani's and Stella's early experiments with radical painting.
