Inspired by the works of Elaine de Kooning.
Elaine de Kooning (1918-1989) was featured in the Denver Art Museum's exhibit, Women of Abstract Expressionism.
A 2015 show prompted rediscovery of Elaine de Kooning's work. The free-thinking Abstract Expressionist, though in her partner Willem de Kooning’s shadow, captured an era with skill and élan. She was a gifted figurative painter and committed Abstract Expressionist, as well as a free thinker, writer, respected critic, popular friend, and beloved teacher.
