Woman- Painting Of Woman Enjoying Painting By Willem deKooning

2018

SOLD

Willem deKooning is well known for his abstract expressionists works of art. Woman I was one of a series of six paintings centered upon a female figure that deKooning worked on from 1950 to 1953.

Here, he took the opportunity to further experiment with the wide-ranging methods of applying paint to canvas. It might surprise you that DeKooning made numerous preliminary studies then repainted the canvas repeatedly, scraping away and re-working the image, over nearly two years.

I of course didn't work on it for over two years, just one day, but as I'm a realist artist it was a welcome change to splash some paint around!

Guernica 2.0- Woman Fiddling With Phone In Front Of Painting By Pablo Picasso



Guernica 2.0

Guernica is probably Picasso's most powerful political statement. He painted it as an immediate reaction to the Nazi's bombing on the Basque town of Guernica during Spanish Civil War.

Guernica shows the tragedies of war and the suffering it inflicts upon individuals, particularly innocent civilians. It's now seen as a universal symbol against war. The woman on my painting is staring at her phone.

The woman on my painting is looking at a portrait of Jackie Kennedy by Andy Warhol. In the weeks that followed the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963, Warhol began to collect pictures of the widowed First Lady that flooded the popular press.

He had silkscreens made of his various Jackie images and began to print them on small canvases with blue- and gold-colored grounds. The close-cropped images here reproduces a moment shortly before any shots were fired and soon after.

The woman on my painting is enjoying Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I (also called The Lady in Gold or The Woman in Gold) by Gustav Klimt.

The painting was stolen by the Nazis in 1941 and following eight years of effort by the Bloch-Bauer heirs, the painting was returned to the family; it was sold the same year for $135 million, at the time a record price for a painting. The portrait is the final and most fully representative work of Klimt's golden phase.
