William de Kooning

Woman and Bicycle
William De Kooning
Oil on canvas

I choose for my final project to do a piece that was inspired by William De Kooning. He was an abstract expressionist who had different phases of paintings he had just as Picasso's did. Kooning had portrayed the women in this series to be free spirited indivudal. Even tho his paintings did not show fine lines and clear images of the subjects, as a spectator you can still get the idea of what he was trying to portray. These woman is not in proportion or glamorized, but thats what made his work have a modern take to it. The use of bright colors to contrast the silhouette of the women in the painting.
