Today is Willem de Kooning’s birthday! He would have been 105. 

On the occasion of the Museum of Modern Art’s tremendous 2011 John Elderfield-curated de Kooning retrospective, de Kooning co-biographer Mark Stevens came onto The Modern Art Notes Podcast. Stevens and his co-author Annalyn Swan won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for their biography of the artist, “de Kooning: Am American Master.”  So far as I know, this program marked Stevens’s first thoughts on the exhibition. 

Download the program directly to your PC/mobile device here. You can see images of the art Stevens and I discuss here.
