de Kooning: A Retrospective

Back in September the Museum of Modern Art began an exhibition dedicated to the entire career of Willem de Kooning. His colorful visions of beauty are among our favorites, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to study his life and his work dating back to his work before he moved to America in 1926.

In anticipation for the exhibit, Architectural Digest revisited their 1982 issue which features the East Hampton home and studio of Mr. de Kooning. It is a beautiful behind the scenes look into works in progress, rooms filled with light and overall inspiration from one of the most important artists of our time.
