MAKING SENSE OF DE KOONING
by Charlie Finch
Until the newest iteration of Bravo's "Work of Art" reality show returns in October (no need to attend any actual gallery exhibitions during that month), the lovably conformist world of art shall be beamed down on the life's work of someone named Willem de Kooning
, assembled in a retrospective on Sept. 18, 2011, at the Museum of Modern Art. I am writing about him now so I don't have to attend the show.
