Here’s de Kooning:
Here’s a bit of de Kooning talking about the women paintings.
Here’s some more de Kooning. Motherwell and Newman are on the video as well. But those two don’t interest me nearly as much as de Kooning does. Motherwell and Newman are interesting to listen to. But I can’t look at their work with remotely like the interest that I look at de Kooning’s work.
Check out the lengths of those brushes. He’s not making simple paintings by any means. It’s extremely complex work. Newman and Motherwell don’t make complex paintings and they don’t interest me at all really. But I keep an open mind. I never know if I’m going to develop an interest in a painter who has never interested me before.
