Willem De Kooning

I chose this painting because it shows how Kooning used a figure as a reference in his paintings as opposed to another very important abstract impressionist, Jackson Pollock. The figure is present in the painting although it is not the most identifiable and realistic looking figure. The use of colors and broad brush strokes are part of the reason that Kooning became well known.
