Willem de Kooning | Zao Wou-Ki

$60.00

This volume explores the parallel careers of two celebrated postwar painters: Willem de Kooning (1904 – 1997) and Zao Wou–Ki (1921 – 2013). Published in conjunction with Lévy Gorvy’s exhibition pairing the artist's abstract landscapes, this wide-ranging catalogue demonstrates that, although the two never met, de Kooning and Zao shared a model of color, composition, and motif that remains relevant in the world of contemporary painting. With texts in English, Chinese, and French, Willem de Kooning | Zao Wou-Ki charts an East-West dialogue in the immediate aftermath of World War II, tracing the thread of nonfigurative abstraction in Chinese, European, and American modernism. With rich archival material, never-before-published photographs, and newly commissioned essays, Willem de Kooning | Zao Wou-Ki instantiates an innovative transnational reading of postwar painting.
