William de Kooning,
Painting, 1948

One of the displays in his earliest gallery, still exercises his signature abstract style, yet without the color seen in many of his later works. I really enjoyed the fact that he was able to use oil on canvas yet give the appearance of almost a chalk texture on blackboard. The painting was created by recycling several of his scrapped earlier works. Much unlike alot of his later work, the sharp outlines really bring life to the organic shapes and let the imagination go to work.
