Catalogue Note

The Women had to do with the female painted through all the ages, all those idols, and maybe I was stuck to a certain extent; I couldn't go on. It did one thing for me: it eliminated composition, arrangement, relationships, light-all this silly talk about line, color and form-because that was the thing I wanted to get hold of – Willem de Kooning
