De Kooning Review
Susan Livengood 2006
Did you aspire to be an artist, before responsibilities got in the way? Painter, poet, author, musician, the kind of thing your parents warned you against, sure that you wouldn’t make enough money to support yourself and your family. What if you hadn’t listened and pursued your art?
The book “De Kooning, An American Master” by Mark Stevens and Annalyn Swan is a biography of Willem de Kooning. This was the story of a decision to pursue art, regardless of the cost. He became a painter known as an American Master.
