“De Kooning: A Retrospective” is an exhibition taking place through January 9, 2012, at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York City.
Why see it: MoMA presents an opportunity for visitors to study Willem de Kooning’s artistic development over nearly seven decades, beginning with his early academic works and ending with his final, spare abstract paintings of the late 1980s.
What you’ll see: Bringing together more than 200 works from public and private collections, this exhibition represents nearly every type of work de Kooning made. This retrospective includes paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints. Also included is de Kooning’s famous yet largely unseen theatrical backdrop, the 17-foot-square Labryinth.
