Color Field Painting
- Images of women came to de Kooning again in June 1963 once he completed his move from New York City to the Springs, East Hampton, on Long Island.
- He began with freely drawn charcoal figures on sheets of strong and translucent architect's tracing paper.
- Tracing paper was an important element to de Kooning’s painting. He used it to record sections of his paintings or to transfer images between drawings and paintings.
- He also performed experiments, such as drawing with his eyes closed or using his “wrong” hand (the left). Innovations to the 1960s woman came from these experiments.
- In his works on paper, the women cluster together or float on the surface.
- His large woman paintings on canvas are different. The woman expands and stretches, filling the canvas.
- If he includes a landscape with the woman in the large painting, the woman and the landscape are not in harmony. She does not easily relax in de Kooning’s landscape.
