I chose this work of art, the Portrait of Renée which was created in 1924 by Willem de Kooning. It is an oil, charcoal, and conté crayon on canvas. It is from a private collection. I couldn't find any background on the work, itself. I chose it because it shows a level of innocence. He was able to capture the essence of the child, even with a toy. Its very detailed and colorful.
