Willem de Kooning East Hampton Portraits 1966-1980
September 12 – October 19, 1996
Rare photographs by Martin Koeniges of Abstract Expressionist Willem de Kooning were curated from a previously unknown body of work. Koeniges befriended Willem de Kooning and was subsequently given the freedom to photograph the artist at work in his studio and on the beaches of East Hampton. This exhibition of revealing portraits brings us closer than ever to who the artist really is.
