Willem de Kooning @ MOMA NYC

spending an afternoon at MOMA
with Willem de Kooning ...

"I don't paint to live, I live to paint."
Willem de Kooning
Willem de Kooning's painting at the apartment of psychiatrist and socialite Samantha Boardman
"I make pictures and someone comes in and calls it art."

"Art never seems to make me peaceful or pure."
"Style is a fraud. I always felt the Greeks were hiding behind their columns."

"Whatever an artist's personal feelings are, as soon as an artist fills a certain area on the canvas or circumscribes it, he becomes historical. He acts from or upon other artists."
