This book explores the portraiture of Elaine de Kooning, an enormously talented artist whose widely admired body of work--both abstract and figurative--is overdue for a contemporary reassessment. John F. Kennedy, Frank O'Hara, Allen Ginsberg, Merce Cunningham, and Fairfield Porter were just some of the figures who sat for portraits by Elaine de Kooning. Famous for her marriage to the Abstract Expressionist Willem de Kooning, Elaine was herself a groundbreaking artist and writer who challenged many conventions during her career. Although she portrayed women, she was most engaged with portraits of men, sometimes painting multiple portraits of her subjects in order to explore and capture their most compelling likeness. She focused intently on her subjects--as she wrote in 1965, "Like falling in love painting a portrait is a concentration on one particular person and no one else will do." This insightful book explores de Kooning's portraits as well as her artistic process and her position in the rise of Postmodernism. Illustrated throughout with full-color reproductions of paintings, drawings, and archival photos, this book is an important contribution to the literature on Abstract Expressionism, women artists, and feminism during a transformative period, and will also appeal to lovers of painting of all kinds. -- Prestel Publishing

El mundo del arte es el del estilo personal, la crítica, la fantasía, la belleza. El del diseño, en cambio, es el del profesional, la industria, la creatividad, la funcionalidad. Son mundos paralelos que Bruno M...

    PILLAULT, THÉOPHILE
    The Chronicles traces the artist JonOne’s unusual journey from New York to Paris and from the spray can to the paintbrush. Born in Harlem in the early 60s, the artist’s early career is firmly rooted in the rule-bound hierarchy of tagging and graffiti culture. With his move to Paris in 1987, JonOne’s artistic constrictions were quickly cast aside. The energy of his paintings on ...
