--
Willem de Kooning (1904-1997) was a central figure of the New York School of Abstract Expressionism along with Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko, and helped change the course of art. After the six-year interlude of World War II, the first generation of new American painting challenged modernist European tradition with evolutionary élan and an explosion of spirit.
