5.0 out of 5 stars seminal period of an American master 26 Feb 2007
By Greg McDermont - Published on Amazon.com
This book contains numerous illustrations of many rarely seen works from what is perhaps the seminal period of this masters work. There are numerous essays by leading scholars of de Koonings art. The design is a little heavy handed, for example the ideosyncratic typeface, but it does not get in the way of viewing the plates. The uncoated paper is a nice touch. Many other books reproduce de Koonings paintings with oversaturated colors; this one does not.

I bought this as a Christmas present for my son who is an artist. He appreciates De Kooning more than I do.
