Last Thursday night, Pace Gallery on East 57th Street kicked off what should be the year of de Kooning, considering the retrospective coming up at the Museum of Modern Art this fall, and celebrated Pace's new representation of the de Kooning estate as well, with the show "Willem de Kooning, The Figure: Movement and Gesture," which gallery staff described to me as "rarely seen works from private collections, none of which are for sale."
