When Willem de Kooning painted “Sail Cloth” in 1949, the artist had just enjoyed his first solo exhibition, held at Manhattan’s Charles Egan Gallery. Described by the critic Clement Greenberg as “magnificent,” the show featured works—like “Black Untitled”—painted in just black and white. On the heels of this successful début, “Sail Cloth” was made as part of a group of paintings that reintroduced color—though they maintained an evasive relationship with representation and subject matter. Nevertheless, with its energetic circuit of black brushstrokes and radiant palette, “Sail Cloth” is a highly evocative painting—even more so when considering the fact that it was painted while de Kooning holidayed in sunny, seaside Cape Cod. The perfect image as we sail into this hot August weekend!

What do you see? •

“Untitled” (oil and enamel on paper, mounted on composition board; 1948-1949) by Willem De Kooning, at The Art Institute of Chicago. •

How does the absence of color shape this painting? •

I like imagining this moment in De Kooning’s career, where he leaves behind a representational approach to the human form and psyche, and instead narrows in, through his limited palette of sprawling white forms on rich black, on the idea of extending his thoughts to his hand, through his brush, and ultimately onto his composition — letting action take hold in place of excessive consideration, tact, or any potential hesitation. •

Willem de Kooning, 'Two Women in the Country' 1960. #willemdekooning #modernart #abstractexpressionism "The attitude that nature is chaotic and that the artist puts order into it is a very absurd point of view, I think. All that we can hope for is to put some order into ourselves."

Willem de Kooning, 'Door to the River' 1960 . @whitneymuseum

Maybe my favorite painting in the world.

Either the art gods are watching me or this is spam, but I was tagged on this image of Perle Fine and the timing is perfect. Yes! A reminder of what I hold true and needed to see.

Perle Fine was was one of the most prominent female artists associated with American Abstract Expressionism. Highly regarded by other artists, in 1950 she was nominated by Willem de Kooning and admitted to the 8th Street “Artists’ Club”. She once said 'I never thought of myself as a student or teacher, but as a painter. When I paint something I am very much aware of the future. If I feel something will not stand up 40 years from now, I am not interested in doing that kind of thing." Her works have been exhibited @whitneymuseum @themuseumofmodernart @guggenheim
