    Online Class: Willem de Kooning in Context

    The Barnes Foundation

    Online, PA Online

    Tuesday April 6th 2021 to Tuesday April 27th 2021

    • Tuesdays

      1:00pm to 3:10pm

    Embedded within Willem de Kooning’s “abstract urban landscapes”—as art critic Thomas Hess described them—are layers of paint, stacked one on top of another, as if to remind us of the physicality of the act of painting.


    De Kooning blurred lines between himself and the object and created freely in the gestural/performative space between the two. Explore how he shaped the iconic abstract expressionists of the New York School and continued to inspire subsequent generations.

    Each week, the main lecture is followed by a 30-minute discussion session that allows students the opportunity to ask questions and exchange ideas with the instructor and classmates.
